Associate of Science in Homeland Security (ASHS)
The ASHS requires the successful completion of 60 credit-hours of instruction at the lower level (freshman and sophomore years). The ASHS places a strong emphasis on general education courses that will provide a foundation for entry to the BSHS program. General education courses are designed to broaden a student’s educational foundation. They include courses in such areas as communications, English, government, history, psychology, sociology, mathematics, and statistics. A student must complete at least 15 credit-hours in General Education to receive an ASHS degree. A student must also complete 18 credit-hours in Homeland Security Core courses. The remaining credits not covered by the required General Education or Core courses will consist of elective courses.

ASHS Program Objectives

Upon successful completion of the program, students will be able to:
  • Apply knowledge of Homeland Security to specialized areas of concern
  • Evaluate the importance of communication, coordination, and cooperation in a variety of competing agencies
  • Apply expertise on various international and domestic terrorist entities and comprehend the underlying conflicts that foster their existence
  • Synthesize the roles of the key players in Homeland Security, such as government (federal, state & local), military, and non-government organizations (for-profit and non-profit) and critique their effectiveness
