Distance learning in Homeland Security from Capella.

Capella University : 26 October, 2007  (New Product)
Capella University provides online Bachelor degree program in Homeland Security and Security Management for the management of public security or private sector leadership.
Capella University is offering two new specialisations within its Bachelor of Science in Public Safety online degree program - Homeland Security and Security Management. The specializations are designed to help meet employment needs within these growing fields. The Homeland Security specialization focuses on managing public security in relation to federal resources, while the Security Management specialization focuses on preparing individuals for leadership within the private security field.

"Since the Department of Homeland Security was created in 2001, it has grown into one of the largest federal agencies, and there are also many homeland security employment opportunities within other federal agencies and state and local governments. Our new Homeland Security specialization is designed to help prepare students to succeed in these important positions," said John Sullivan PhD, Public Safety faculty chair in Capella's School of Undergraduate Studies. The National Security Agency and US Department of Homeland Security have designated Capella University a National Centre of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education. Capella is also one of few schools to have an educational alliance with the FBI.

"Our other new specialisation, Security Management, focuses on the needs of private industry, where security has also increased in importance," said Dr Sullivan. "Much of the nation's infrastructure is privately owned and there's a growing recognition that this needs to be protected, for both business and national security reasons."

Dr Sullivan exemplifies Capella's philosophy of recruiting highly experienced scholar-practitioners for faculty and program leadership positions. Prior to beginning his academic career, which included service as academic dean and founding director of graduate studies in criminal justice for Lynn University, Sullivan had an extensive career with the US Customs Service. He was a US Treasury agent specialising in criminal investigations of fraud, internal security, money laundering, and child sexual exploitation before becoming an agent-in-charge of two large field offices. He also served as US Customs headquarters section chief for general smuggling, during which time he authored some of the earliest threat assessments on terrorism in the 1980s. He has been a guest instructor at both the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centre and the FBI Academy, has testified before Congress on crimes against children, and has served on the executive protection details of US presidents and their families, presidential candidates, and heads of state.

His professional certifications include Certified Homeland Security Practitioner (CHS-V), Certified Fraud Examiner, and Certified Business Manager, among others.

Capella is now accepting enrollment applications for its BSc in Public Safety, Homeland Security and Security Management specialisations.
