The master's offers concentrations in business, transportation, industrial, international, and homeland security, as well as terrorism studies, fraud investigation, executive security management, and intelligence methods.
Professionals pursuing an undergraduate degree in security management can participate in AMU's academic internship program. Open to students currently employed in security management or a related field, the internship consists of five of the degree curriculum's core courses, plus credit gained for a student's professional duties. The academic courses--private security, business assets protection, protective services, physical security, and access control--can be taken in any sequence.
