Since 9/11, the military, federal government agencies, and private military contractors have developed new counter-terrorism procedures leading to an increased demand for high wage counter-terrorism jobs. Courses in this concentration focus on an in-depth understanding of motivations and trends, threat assessment, information security, leadership, public policy planning, preparedness and response.
The study of the causes, methods, detection, and prevention of domestic terrorism provides critical background for careers in law enforcement and public policy, among others. The rise of domestic terrorism has created an urgent need for professionals who can lead communities and the nation in the prevention of mass shooting, bombings, or other incidents involving injury or death. The Becker College domestic counter-terrorism studies program will produce graduates prepared for careers in law enforcement, firefighting, government, law, emergency response and management, and research.
Courses include: the history and causes of domestic terrorism, public preparedness, emergency management, law enforcement techniques, and public policy. In addition, policies and methods for dealing with acts of terrorism will be explored. Students receive interdisciplinary training in advanced research into causes and management techniques, learning a wide range of skills necessary to anticipate, understand, and deal with incidents of terrorism. Courses in U.S. history and constitutional law and policy are also provided to prepare students for dealing with domestic threats.
