There are several ways you can use the training you receive at security administration schools in Illinois. Security administration involves coordinating different resources to respond to emergencies or disasters, or to protect people from these same events. Job possibilities include working in federal agencies like FEMA, in homeland security, or in community programs. An associate’s degree in homeland security covers the fundamentals of this field, such as criminal justice, constitutional law, emergency planning and response, computer-related crimes, and homeland security principles. Terrorism and biological terrorism may also be studied in the coursework with the aim of helping students understand and combat these events.
