About this Degree

 The Master of Professional Studies (MPS) in Homeland Security Studies from Tulane University focuses on securing and maintaining the safety of U.S. residents through practical applications of security and emergency management.

From courses on domestic and international terrorism and intelligence research methods to examinations of emergency management and border security, the curriculum dives deep into the policies and strategies used in today’s advanced homeland security sector. Upon completion of core courses, you will also have the opportunity to develop an individual plan of study with the Program Director based on your specific interests, including courses outside the Emergency and Security Studies program available on-campus.

Boost your resume with a graduate certificate in Intelligence. You can complete this certificate by taking only four courses. Then, those credits can be applied toward an MPS in Homeland Security.
