Education & Career Opportunities in Homeland Security

According to a report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, homeland security jobs rank among the fastest-growing occupations in many federal and state agencies, including the recently established federal Department of Homeland Security. Related jobs include opportunities in state border patrol agencies, state and federal emergency management agencies, immigration and customs enforcement, state and national guard agencies, and various branches of the military. In addition, private-sector opportunities in the homeland security field are also growing at a rapid clip.
