Minor - Homeland Security

These requirements will apply to students enrolling at AU in the 2018-2019 academic year. Current students can find the requirements that apply to them by consulting the relevant academic catalog.

20 semester hours

The minor in homeland security is built on the existing body of knowledge in homeland security and emergency management as well as developing research, with an emphasis on lessening the impacts of disasters on society’s most vulnerable citizens. The proposed minor prepares students for public service and partnership with the local community (private, nonprofit and public), and will provide opportunities for students to transfer acquired skills into the work environment, thereby contributing to economic development and a society more prepared to meet hazards, emergencies, terrorist threats or disasters.
