Master of Arts in Emergency Management and Homeland Security: Biosecurity and Threat Management

The biosecurity and threat management concentration provides motivated students with knowledge, skills and abilities to assume leadership and key management positions with public sector agencies (or related organizations) with operations and responsibilities in public health, homeland security, risk management, and several closely related fields. Biosecurity refers generally to policies and organizational practices related to protecting humans and animals from hazardous biological agents, whether they appear naturally or through malicious intent (e.g. bioterrorism).

This concentration area is designed to meet the career and professional development needs for those students interested in those fields. In additional to being relevant to public health agencies and general public safety agencies, the concentration is also well-suited for those interested in private sector organizations, such as positions managing emergency preparedness issues for private hospitals or general threat management services with a wide range of different private sector firms.
