From the start of the program, I developed a comprehensive understanding of this particular subset of homeland security, and advanced my awareness of its importance.
The faculty are experts in the field, which is really nice because you're actually interacting with someone with real-world homeland security expertise. You can ask the tough questions and get immediate responses. With that kind of interaction, you learn and challenge yourself.
I had the opportunity to learn from a professor whose experience included advising President Reagan and his staff on the most serious issues of national security. The professor’s willingness to connect you with other practitioners to help with a job search, or help with a research paper, was invaluable.
