Although we tend to think of homeland security as being a new initiative since 9/11, in fact the Department of Homeland Security is the consolidation of some 22 agencies, which were fragmented Federal functions. The Department of Homeland Security creates a unified initiative to protect America from the threat of terrorism.
Homeland security will be a part of our culture for the foreseeable future, and will give good career opportunities. If this is an area you are interested in, higher education will help you to build the career you want.
