Experts in Emergency Preparedness and Homeland Security

Over the past 50 years, weather-related disasters have increased fivefold, according to the World Meteorological Association. A new concentration in the Master of Homeland Security Program provides the emergency management training and education needed to plan for and respond to natural disasters, from floods to wildfires.

James Warwick, WilmU’s Criminal Justice Programs director, notes that specialized expertise is a skill that is marketable to government agencies and the private sector.

“Thousands of businesses and organizations have a need to maintain their mission and operations during disaster situations and rely on qualified employees to facilitate organizational continuity operations and planning,” he says.

The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences also will introduce a second concentration to graduate students this fall, preparing them to effectively use intelligence for national security, homeland security, and criminal justice pursuits. Graduates will be able to navigate the legal and policy frameworks that guide intelligence activities and analysis while protecting the privacy, civil rights and civil liberties of U.S. citizens.

“Students completing this concentration will develop the skills necessary to become astute consumers of intelligence irrespective of their role within the national security, homeland security and criminal justice professions,” Dr. Warwick says.
