Homeland Security is about safeguarding the United States from catastrophic disaster. Tulane’s Homeland Security Studies program, established in 2006, provides a comprehensive overview of homeland security and emergency management categories – threats, hazards and security – from a managerial perspective, with an emphasis on leadership, hands-on training, critical thinking and decision making. Recurrent natural disasters, infrastructure attacks and the ongoing threat of terrorism to the continental United States have made homeland security a rapidly growing field with a high demand for skilled leadership and informed management, both in the public sector and within private industry. Students may earn an associate of arts or a bachelor of arts degree, a minor, a post-baccalaureate certificate or a master’s degree.

Since 2007, Tulane’s Homeland Security Studies program has been a member and participant in the Naval Postgraduate School’s Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) and University and Agency Partner Initiative (UAPI), the nation’s leading program for establishing and sharing homeland security curricula.
