Minor in Homeland Security

Students may seek an academic minor in homeland security.

The homeland security minor complements the skills the student gains in his or her major discipline by providing knowledge of the concepts of domestic and international security.

Requirements for the Minor

A minor in homeland security requires the completion of 15 credits of coursework in homeland security. All HMLS courses apply. It is recommended that students take HMLS 302 or 304 as the first course in the minor (if they have not already applied the course toward other degree requirements).

Courses already applied toward other degree requirements (e.g., major or general education) may not be applied toward the minor. At least 9 credits must be earned in upper-level courses (numbered 300 or above). Prerequisites apply for all courses.
