Fully available on both the Manchester and Durham campuses, the homeland security program develops the analytical, technical, strategic and leadership skills central to ensuring security for agencies, organizations and the nation. Through expert faculty and hands-on experience in the classroom and in the field, students learn the fundamentals of cybersecurity, critical infrastructure security and resilience; the origins, ideologies and goals of terrorism; and the key role intelligence, emergency management, human and environmental security and strategic planning play in defending and securing our nation.
With a greater emphasis on the collection and storage of big data, information security and cloud computing, the demand for cybersecurity engineers has never been higher. Designed for working professionals and those with a strong interest in cybersecurity, our cybersecurity engineering program prepares you to develop, engineer and operate secure information systems. You’ll learn the theoretical underpinnings of information security and have opportunities to apply your skills to real-world scenarios and authentic project experiences.
Our fully online program fosters strategic thinking, policy development and risk management skills necessary to keep organizations secure and resilient. This highly interdisciplinary program is designed for students and working professionals with a variety of backgrounds — business, healthcare, IT, finance, homeland security, law and more — so you do not need an undergraduate degree in a technical field to be successful. Our full-time faculty, practicing experts and senior executives guide your cybersecurity learning with real-world assignments and scenarios.
