At Colorado Technical University, we offer degree programs based upon the types of homeland security and criminal justice issues organizations are facing today and likely to confront tomorrow. Available in Homeland Security or Criminal Justice degree areas at the undergraduate and graduate levels, our academic programs are designed to provide you with an opportunity to learn the knowledge and skills to pursue a diverse range of opportunities in the fields of justice, law and homeland security in both the public and private sectors. Course content is regularly updated to reflect current strategies and policies, theories, applications and practices driving the criminal justice and homeland security fields.

Welcome to Security Studies at Colorado Technical University.
My role at CTU is University Dean for Security Studies, and I oversee many of the curricular and content aspects of the university’s Criminal Justice and Homeland Security programs as well as help develop new programs. I am also on the faculty of the Naval Postgraduate School’s Center for Homeland Defense and Security and I serve as a Senior Fellow at The George Washington University’s Homeland Security Policy Institute and as a member of the board of the Journal of Homeland Security Education. I previously served as a Senior Director at Israel’s National Security Council where I was part of a small team that advised Israel’s Prime Minister and Cabinet on national security policy. I recently published the first textbook to focus on international homeland security policies entitled: Comparative Homeland Security: Global Lessons and I have published articles and book chapters on homeland security, national security and Middle East-related topics.
The University has decided to amalgamate a number of different academic programs under what we call program verticals and hence Criminal Justice and Homeland Security programs have been brought together under the common umbrella of Security Studies. We believe that this approach will allow us to create greater synergies between the programs as well as help us engage other parts of the university (student services, admissions, faculty, registrar, etc.) to continuously improve services for students in the Criminal Justice and Homeland Security programs. As far as the curricular content is concerned, we are keeping abreast of changes and developments in the Criminal Justice and Homeland Security fields and update and revise courses to reflect these evolving fields – both from the standpoint of these fields as academic disciplines as well as practitioner enterprises. We are continually striving to ensure that the curriculum stays relevant and challenges students to further develop their research and critical thinking and analysis skills. Ultimately, factual knowledge is something that is continually acquired but the skills to find, process and create outputs from that knowledge are critical and must lie at the core of any educational endeavor.
We would very much like to hear from our alumni and how you have developed in the various Criminal Justice or Homeland Security career paths. You can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
