As Homeland Security students walk the stage at graduation, they typically have completed an internship and a consulting experience in a real organization. As a direct result, almost 60% already have jobs or plans to attend graduate school, which is significantly above the national average. Over three-fourths of the class have at least one interview before graduation, and, ultimately, 100% of Homeland Security students have jobs or are attending graduate school within one year of graduation.
