About the Homeland Security and Criminal Justice Institute

Purpose: In the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the Office of Homeland Security was created to strategically coordinate government agencies in order to better forecast, prevent, and defend against future terrorist threats. Six key operational areas are now the focus of Homeland Security: intelligence and warning; border and transportation security; domestic counterterrorism; protecting critical infrastructure; defending against catastrophic threats; and emergency preparedness and response. Students examine a span of local, national and international issues and operations from terrorism to disaster planning and response. 

The intelligence analytics area of concentration provides students with a critical understanding of the complex nature of the intelligence community and its role in supporting U.S. national security.
