Homeland Security Concentration
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was developed following the 9-11 attacks. American awareness of terrorism has become more prevalent since that time, and the DHS has grown to become the largest Federal law enforcement agency in the United States. Reflecting the foundational knowledge and skills of the DHS, Waldorf’s Homeland Security concentration complements the Emergency Management program by focusing on topics related to: terrorism, American homeland security, tactical response operations, and weapons of mass destruction.

Estimated time of completion of this program is 4 years for full-time students.
