Masters in Homeland Security

Masters in Homeland Security

Homeland security is a relatively new concept, but a field of study that has grown rapidly in recent years. Pursuing a Masters in Homeland Security helps prepare a student to respond to the threat of terrorist attacks, including a wide range of subject matter related to this. That includes such topics as disaster psychology, urban terrorism, and agricultural biosecurity, for example. Students usually combine a combination of taught courses with a final research project or other thesis, usually in a very specialized subject that has caught their interest in the framework of this larger field of study or for work experience. 

As a great deal of the subject matter that goes into this field is systems-based, it makes sense for many to look into online study programs as a way to go through their Homeland Security Master's Programs. There are online degrees these days that have the same level of academic respect and reputation that students would find at any other traditional academic institution, at a greater level of convenience and for a lower price in many cases. This could help lead to a career in the field, which is one of the security industries at the moment. 

Graduates of a homeland security program are qualified to find employment in a number of different security fields, and may end up being transportation security officers, law enforcement officials, or disaster recovery specialists. The job placement rate is high, and there is a huge demand at the moment for qualified specialists to protect the public. This demand has led to a steady salary rate and increase, as well. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, recent graduates could expect to earn anywhere from $25,000-$62,000 depending on the field of specialty, with criminal investigators earning dollar.
