The University of Management and Technology (UMT) is pleased to announce the successful approval by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC) for our two brand new concentrations in homeland security. The concentrations are offered under our existing BSCJ (Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice) and MSCJ (Master of Science in Criminal Justice) programs. The course offerings for the two concentrations will provide students with the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to become successful practitioners in homeland security.
Each concentration consists of 5 courses specifically developed to meet the emerging needs in this fast growing and rapidly evolving area of study. At the undergraduate level, the curriculum provides foundation concepts and advanced topics in homeland security. At the graduate level, the curriculum provides a strong foundation in theory and practice to allow graduates to do an effective job in performing their leadership duties in the field. It is inevitable that homeland security will continue to be a national priority and individuals knowledgeable in this discipline will always be valuable national assets. We look forward to providing these courses to interested students so that we can help meet this national security challenge head on by educating future homeland security professionals.
