Homeland security schools in West Virginia offer students bachelor’s degree programs as preparation for one of many rewarding and important careers in homeland security. The Office of Homeland Security was created in response to the rising threats against the United States. Most homeland security personnel work within government agencies helping protect the country from national and international terrorist threats and natural disasters. The goal for any homeland security program is to teach the students how to prepare for, respond to and avoid threats cased by intentional acts of violence, accidents and natural disasters. Most homeland security schools in West Virginia take a minimum of four years to complete. Typical major courses include emergency response, international terrorism, intelligence analysis and security assessment.
