"Prepare for the worst and hope for the best" is an old maxim that homeland security professionals take very seriously. Charged with protecting the United States from threats of just about any kind, there are many careers that could contribute to that one single mission. Homeland security programs have arisen as an academic discipline to offer interested students some preparation to help them pursue a career in this field. Coursework could include emergency response procedures, public health threats, criminal justice, political science, border security, natural disaster preparation, and gang violence.
