Are you currently working in the criminal justice field but want to broaden your knowledge and understanding? Do you have an interest in working within our justice system but aren’t sure if college is right for you? Along with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice and Homeland Security and a minor in Criminal Justice, we offer a certificate in Homeland Security and Emergency Management.

Upon completion of the certificate, students will be better equipped to lead their agency, department, organization, company, and community in the preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation of both natural and man-made disasters. This certificate is available for students currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice and Homeland Security and this certificate is financial aid eligible.
