Hassan’s Answer

There are jobs that only require GED but I would expect that higher level position will require Bachelor or even Masters degrees.

You could look through jobs here https://www.usajobs.gov/Search/Results?l=&d=HS&s=salary&sd=asc&p=1 and see what the educational requirements are.

Roger’s Answer

The required level of education depends on the type of job in homeland security and the responsibilities. I have a Ph.D. and worked in homeland security for a number of years. Hourly workers many have a high school degree, GED, or less. As with most fields, the more education you get, the more opportunities there are, and usually the higher the responsibilities and pay. Certainly a 4-year college degree opens up far more opportunities in security management.
