Program of the Month Roundup: Homeland Security (B.S.)


Medaille’s Program of the Month (POTM) series highlighted students, faculty and alumni from the College’s homeland security (HLS) program in February 2018. This online bachelor’s degree program focuses on practical and relevant topics, such as security, terrorism, legal issues and emergency preparedness.
