What are the best schools for studying homeland security?
I know that some schools have a better reputation than others in general, but what about homeland security programs specifically? I want to make sure that I get the best education available to me within my field. #college #reputation #homeland-security
"Best school" is relative to the needs of the individual. Whatever school you decide upon, it would be best to know the schools geographical location to a military base, military satellite off-base and/or local Homeland Security offices. The federal portion of the government is the first line of defense in the security of a nation, so access to their expertise is valuable for your research.
If you're interested in going the academic route, I would recommend contacting the admissions offices at the Walsh School at Georgetown University, the Fletcher School at Tufts or the Price School at USC. All three of these universities offer homeland security or security studies certificate programs. Even if you don't want to attend these schools, they have access to resources and contacts in your area.
