Homeland Security Post-Baccalaureate and Post Master Certificate

Homeland Security Post-Baccalaureate and Post Master Certificate


There is a growing need for professionals skilled in the creation, implementation and execution of plans and strategies to respond to terrorist threats and natural disasters. At Saint Joseph’s, the post-baccalaureate and post-master’s certificates in homeland security offer students the opportunity to examine strategies, develop communication skills, execute plans and learn about contemporary issues of terrorism which affect public and private sectors in our society.

Students who are interested in a post-baccalaureate certificate must complete six core courses (18 credits):

  • Police Executive Management
  • Seminar: Special/Target Hazard Planning and Evaluation
  • Seminar: Disaster Planning and Management
  • Terrorism: Threats and Securities
  • Homeland Security
  • Case Study in Homeland Security

Students who register for the post-baccalaureate certificate program may transfer these courses to the applicable master's degree program if they wish to pursue the graduate degree. Students who already possess a master’s degree and complete six courses as determined through consultation with the program director will be awarded a post-master’s certificate. The curriculum will be customized to an individual's needs and courses will be selected with consideration for the professional and personal goals of the individual student. Students who complete the post-master’s certificate program may apply these credit hours towards a master of science in homeland security degree.
