If you're interested in emergency management planning or protecting against terrorist threats, consider earning a Terrorism and Homeland Security Certificate from Southern New Hampshire University. You'll receive the training you need to hold posts in some of the most valued anti-terrorism organizations in the world.
Whether you're pursuing an entry-level position or looking to increase your knowledge, if you're currently working in the field this certificate can get you where you want to go. It's available to those not enrolled in our AS or BS in Justice Studies, non-matriculated students, part-time students and other students as approved by the Department Chair.
As a private, nonprofit university, SNHU has one mission - to help you see yourself succeed. The benefits of earning your terrorism and homeland security certificate at SNHU include:
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the number of emergency management directors will grow by 8%, as fast as the average for all other occupations through 2026.* The proliferation of criminal activity on the internet, such as identity theft, spamming, email harassment and illegal downloading of copyrighted materials, also will increase the demand for private investigators.
Graduates of the Justice Studies certificate programs often go on to complete their AS or BS in Justice Studies online or their BA in Justice Studies online. Those already in the workforce are better prepared for career advancement in business security, policing and law enforcement, federal service agencies, terrorism prevention, the courts, corrections, dispute resolution, victim advocacy, the military and more.
Through a carefully selected program of study, students have the opportunity to discover a broad scope of the American justice system. Start with a series of introductory survey classes, then select a direction that appeals to you: security, industrial and retail security, or international criminal justice.
