Online Security Degree Programs

The security business has exploded over the last decade. Governments, industry, and even private citizens have increasingly sought expert advice and help to protect themselves against crime. If you work or have other responsibilities, an online degree in security can allow you to achieve your goals with flexibility.

Associate's, bachelor's, and master's degrees are available in criminal justice and security. Most programs give you an overview of the criminal justice system and criminology before introducing techniques in investigation and threat management. With a more advanced degree, you can specialize in a particular area of security, such as terrorism prevention or information systems security.

Security professionals work for local, state, and federal police forces. More and more government work is being contracted out to private institutions that also provide security for businesses. With a degree in security, you could also consult with homeowners, businesses, and institutions on security issues.
