Homeland security schools in South Carolina offer students post-secondary education programs such as two-year associate’s and four-year bachelor’s degrees. The main function of all homeland security positions is to properly prepare for, protect and respond to emergency situations. The Office of Homeland Security was created in response to increasing security threats to the United States. Most homeland security personnel work for government agencies at all levels. Typical homeland security classes include disaster recovery and response, emergency management leadership, homeland security public policy, terrorism threats, intelligence analysis, emergency planning, and risk assessment. In addition to classes students should pursue an internship with a homeland security agency.
