The Homeland Security curriculum provides a basic grounding in law and policy related to homeland security and advanced knowledge of specific homeland security fields.
Note to JD students: Classes taken as part of the Master of Science program will be treated as other non-law graduate classes. Accordingly, students must get prior approval from the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs for up to 6 credits to be applied to the 90 credits needed for the J.D. degree.
