Partnering with public agencies, private companies, and the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency services, students will engage in training opportunities that simulate possible real life threats. Students in this degree program will be able to choose from a wide array of courses, including: risk analysis, public administration and policy, computer security, digital forensics, extreme weather, and health preparedness.
Students in CEHC will be expected to complete a research project, an internship, a senior capstone project with an external client, and training in the private and non-profit sector.
