Homeland Security/Public Safety AAS students earn several FEMA and IDHS certificates. They also gain key knowledge and skills regarding incidents and operations in Homeland Security and Public Safety.
Earn a Certificate on the Way to Your Associate Degree
A recommended path to one of the associate degrees in HSPS is to complete one or more of the certificates offered by Ivy Tech while working toward the degree. The certificates are designed to provide gateways toward entry-level homeland security and public safety careers, so you can begin working quickly. You may then choose to pursue a credential that requires more credits and time in order to learn more and move up in your professional career. You can apply the credits from your certificate to your higher-level credential at Ivy Tech to make the most of your time and tuition.
Associate degree graduates must complete a total of 60 credit hours:
- 19 general education course credits
