The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Security Assessment and Management can be completed as a stand-alone program or embedded in the Master of Science degree (see description of the Integrated Homeland Security program).

Online Instruction

The entire post-baccalaureate program is delivered online. The goal of the online program is to provide students all of the necessary resources at their fingertips. Students participate in online classroom discussions and review class materials whenever they choose. The university utilizes Blackboard as the learning platform for all online courses, so there is a consistent format from course to course. The application process and curriculum requirements for online learners are identical to those for students attending courses on Towson’s campus.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Admission requirements for the post-baccalaureate certificate in Security Assessment and Management are the same as for the Master of Science degree in Integrated Homeland Security.
