In an effort to best align coursework with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) objectives, Trident University International (Trident) today announced the offering of three new degree concentrations in the University’s College of Health and Human Services.

These concentrations include Bachelor of Science in Homeland Security – Criminal Justice Administration, Master of Science in Homeland Security - Emergency and Disaster Management concentration, and Master of Science in Homeland Security – Logistics concentration.

Designed for both military and civilian students seeking a degree for a career in the homeland security profession at the federal, state, or municipal level, these programs prepare students to respond to domestic crises, terrorist-based events, and natural disasters.

“These programs not only teach students the critical thinking skills needed to effectively respond to emergencies and disasters, but also afford students a deep understanding of, and appreciation for, the legal and ethical issues involved in security matters,” stated Dr. Rudolph Bustos, Department Chair, Homeland Security, College of Health and Human Services. “The skills are essential as graduates of this program potentially contribute to the safety and well-being of all Americans.”

According to Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), graduates who hold a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Administration degree often fill roles in Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Transportation and Security Administration, and the U.S. Secret Service.

Graduates with a Master’s in Homeland Security find employment in Citizenship and Immigration Services, Customs and Border Protection, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Transportation Security Administration, and the U.S. Secret Service.
