Homeland Security Minor
The minor in homeland security (HLS) is fully available on both campuses - Durham and Manchester. It is designed to provide a professional experience to students not majoring in homeland security, but who are interested in aspects of the discipline. Students not majoring in homeland security will see how homeland security issues, challenges, and tools are related to their specific major and how homeland security can be used to embellish their careers.
The minor requires five courses. Students must earn grades of at least C- in each course and an overall GPA of 2.0 in minor courses. Transfer students may transfer up to two courses, subject to the approval of the HLS program coordinator. Courses taken on a pass/fail basis may not be used for the minor. No more than 8 credits to satisfy major requirements may be used in the minor.
