Whether on the front lines or behind the scenes, a homeland security degree from Concordia University helps students develop critical thinking skills and learn the foundational requirements needed to become leaders in their chosen careers – with practical applications in dozens of fields. First responders need extensive knowledge and the ability to make a positive impact on the situation around them. Disaster planners, information analysts, and recovery managers need to analyze risks and take charge in complex and chaotic situations. Even those already working in related disciplines can leverage their education to help them succeed and excel in their chosen field. This degree hones students' capabilities and decision-making skills to translate knowledge into action.
