Trident University International – Bachelor of Science in Homeland Security - Cybersecurity

Trident University’s College of Health and Human Services offers the Bachelor of Science in Homeland Security (BSHLS) degree program. This program is sequentially constructed to correspond to the “four pillars” of the National Preparedness Goal (2011) and the Missions of the Strategic Plan of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) (2012). The pillars are: (1) Prevent, (2) Protect, (3) Respond, and (4) Recover. This coverage format will ensure that all essential areas are addressed so that learners will be assured fundamental coverage of the Homeland Security scope of responsibilities. Courses will include scenarios and disaster simulation exercises to provide a sense of realism. The program begins with exploring the fundamentals and ethics of HLS, moves to interagency planning, and ultimately ends with the Capstone Course in which the student will submit original work that will reflect an integration of all coursework topics.

Concentration Introduction

Trident University’s College of Health and Human Services offers the Bachelor of Science in Homeland Security degree program with a concentration in Cybersecurity. Growing out of asymmetric warfare—thanks to advances in technologies—is the cyber battlefield in which sensitive infrastructures are compromised or destroyed by belligerents. Additionally, terrorists use this virtual media to further their agenda, intimidate citizens, and otherwise cause harm. The cybersecurity concentration will begin by examining cybersecurity policy and laws, and then move on to offensive and defensive cyber actions and intelligence gathering. Real-life scenarios involving threats to our critical infrastructures will be used.
