Campbell University To Offer Homeland Security Degree
Campbell University students will become the first in North Carolina to take courses toward a major in Homeland Security. About 50 students are already on the path to the four-year undergraduate degree. The courses will familiarize them with domestic and international terrorist groups and delve into the background of countries where terror organizations have historically formed.
David Gray teaches courses on national and international security at Campbell. He says the curriculum has flourished since 9/11.
"Some of these fields, they've gotten much stronger like cyber-security or terrorism or intelligence," Gray says.
"These are some areas and these are some courses that people recognize they need the education for and they take these courses so they're prepared for jobs on the outside."
Students will do their course work at the main campus in Buies Creek and at satellite campuses in RTP, Fort Bragg and Camp Lejeune.
