Security Assessment and Management Certificate
Program Director: Dr. Joseph R. Clark
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).
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. Towson 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 TU’s campus.
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.
Non-immigrant International Students
Program Enrollment: F-1 and J-1 students are required to be enrolled full-time. The majority of their classes must be in-person and on campus. See the list of programs that satisfy these requirements, and contact the International Student and Scholars Office with questions.
