Public Service and Non-Profit Leadership (B.S.)
The Bachelor of Science degree in Public Service and Non-Profit Leadership (PS) provides an interdisciplinary, applied approach to the study of public and not-for-profit institutions and actors. Students explore the ways that leaders and citizens work in and around governments to address the complex problems confronted by New Hampshire and the United States today.
The Bachelor of Arts in Business (BUS) has a strong interdisciplinary focus. The curriculum adheres to a philosophy that effective decision making requires a broad understanding of the institutional and cultural climate within which businesses are operating. The program uses the resources of Manchester's business community and its economic strengths to provide students with skills, knowledge, and opportunities. The business program offers areas of focus in accounting, business economics, management (including human resources), and marketing/sales. Students with a unique interest can create a self-designed concentration with approval of their advisor and the coordinator of the business program.
Homeland Security (B.S.)
The Bachelor of Science in Homeland Security (HLS) is fully offered in both Manchester and Durham campuses. A degree in homeland security will give you the knowledge and tools to defend, protect, act and react to threats small and large, from bioterrorism to data breaches to natural disasters. Built upon the expertise and advice of homeland security professionals across the nation, this program empowers you to think, plan and respond to today's most relevant security and preparedness issues. As a student in our program, you will be learning from faculty who are experts in the field and you’ll work on projects with real businesses and organizations.
