Security Studies

Our courses and programs of study enroll students from a wide variety of backgrounds, including:

  • a Massachusetts State Police lieutenant assigned to the Commonwealth Fusion Center
  • the editor of an internationally-acclaimed terrorism studies journal who lives in Washington, DC
  • an Immigration Services Officer for USCIS (an agency within the Department of Homeland Security)
  • a Suffolk County, Massachusetts court security officer
  • a former captain in a south Florida police agency
  • an operations manager for a trading company
  • a counterterrorism analyst who lives in Washington, DC
  • a case specialist for Immigration Customs Enforcement who lives in Florida
  • a U.S. Army Intelligence Officer who lives in Washington state 
  • a Transportation Security Administration officer in Boston


Peer learning is a core benefit of this program, so we keep our course enrollments to 25 or fewer students and encourage a signficant amount of interaction in our on-campus and online courses. 


Alumni of the Security Studies program who agree to provide their capstone papers and projects online will do so on this page.
