1 Homeland Security Major Zach Wexman, Onye Chi-ukpai, Daniel Rapcsak, John Jackson Prior to the attacks of 9/11, a degree in Homeland Security was non-existent. The U.S. isn t only vulnerable to political and religious fanatics, but bioterrorist threats as well such as Anthrax and other chemical agents. Terrorism has decreased the safety level in society, but also opened a wide range of careers and specialized jobs in homeland security. History of the Major Added divisions of homeland security to law enforcement and government agencies. Research: Put aside billions of citizen tax dollars in order to develop new forms of protection. Homeland Security programs are typically under Criminal Justice divisions at Universities that offer the major. America s Response to Terrorism 1

Online programs are offered for the field of study. Salary variables: education, location, prior experience, and resources of employer Required Education for Careers Several top rated universities in the United States already have majors and degrees related to Homeland Security.

3 Keep the University of Arizona on the cutting edge of all public education institutions Add to the funding and prestige of the research program.

Continue to be better than ASU! Positives for the University Other classes needed to be added into the curriculum for a Homeland Security Major to be offered. Some possible classes include: Public Policy Implications of Terrorism Legislation and Policies Terrorism: A Systemic Approach for Emergency Preparedness Advanced Qualitative Reasoning and Analysis Introduction to Networking Homeland Security Organization and Administration Networking Security Fundamentals Information Warfare and Homeland Security Case Studies in Current Homeland Security Issues. Curriculum of Homeland Security The University of Arizona also offers several classes that already relate to a Homeland Security Major: POL 419: Governance, Security, State Formation and Terrorism SOC 414: Sociology of Terrorism PSY 368: Psychology of Terrorism PA 561A: Climate Change: Science, Policy, and Security Spring PADV 579: Intelligence and US National Security Relevant Classes Already at the University of Arizona 3

4 Nearly two thirds of students polled believe the University should offer a Homeland Security Program. Since 2001, the U.S. federal government has put devoted over $130 billion on strategies relating to Homeland Security. There has been a high amount of funding because the demands for jobs in the field are only going up with time. Starting salaries for this career will vary based on education, location, prior experience, and resources of employer. Students graduating with a bachelor s degree in Homeland Security can expect a starting salary around $40,000 annually. The percentages of students right out of college getting employed in a security career are much higher than the average college graduates. Statistics Transportation Security Administration The United States Capitol Police Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) The United States Coast Guard The United States Customs Services The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) The United States Marshals Service and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Potential Jobs Arenas Students who graduate with a Homeland Security Major will: Learn the who, what, and where of America s most imminent security threats. Discover how to better protect America s borders, with an emphasis on the Southern Border with Mexico. Be trained in efficient and effective ways to manage towns and cities in times of emergency. Learn how to effectively plan for natural disasters in the United States and discover how to efficiently serve those same areas after a disaster. Become educated in international security threats, particularly that of Middle Eastern terrorism. Graduate with the skills and knowledge to serve as leaders in the Homeland Security Industry.
