Radek, what jobs can you get with a Homeland Security Degree? I’m wondering, what can I do with a Homeland Security Degree?
Homeland security graduates can find work in the air, on land, and at sea. They work as air marshals, information analysts, and port authority agents. There are job opportunities in every state and all over the world.
As you might guess, most homeland security jobs are with Federal, State, or local governments. In fact, the Department of Homeland Security is one of the largest Federal agencies. But jobs can also be found within private companies. Big businesses employ security workers to protect against threats to people, property, and information.
Homeland security degree holders may also find work within companies that create, market, and sell homeland security products or services.
As this is a relatively new major and field, we are still learning what homeland security really means. And one bonus about majoring in homeland security — there’s a very slim chance that your job will ever be outsourced overseas.
