School Offers Homeland Security Degree

September 15, 2003  | 

Qualified applicants can now earn a master’s degree in homeland security, paid for by federal grants.

The Office for Domestic Preparedness funds the Homeland Leadership Development Program, located at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California.

“We are educating a new generation of leaders at the state and local level who can function effectively in the new homeland security environment,” says NPS faculty member Chris Bellavita, Ph.D. “Homeland security is not a command-and-control environment. These students are learning how to coordinate and work collaboratively with different levels and disciplines.”

The program runs for 18 months with all expenses paid by ODP, including transportation to the school for the required two weeks in-residence per quarter.

ODP is accepting applications for futures courses beginning in January 2004 and September 2004. For more information on the program or to apply, visit
