Certificate in Counter Terrorism and Security

The 21st century ushered in a new era of global terrorism launched by the attacks on 9/11.  Intermittent events of terrorism around the world  remind us that the threat persists and continues to grow. At the root of global terrorism is a radical strain of Islamic fundamentalism that finds adherents from Saharan /sub Saharan Africa across the Middle East through Central and west/east Asia as well as Europe and North America. This global jihadist movement challenges governments and multinational organizations to maintain their traditional openness and freedoms of operation while installing security procedures and systems to counter this terrorist threat. This certificate is designed provide a foundational understanding of this threat for law enforcement, military, and corporate security officers who act as the first  line of defense against terroristic acts.  This on-line and hybrid certificate program is also intended for participants interested in a career in homeland security at federal, state and local levels in counter terrorism agencies. This certificate is offered at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.  Credits from this graduate certificate can be applied to the M.S. Criminal Justice Administration degree.
