The Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences offers the following undergraduate certificates:
The fire/arson investigation certificate provides individuals in either the public or private sector with the fundamentals required to determine the cause and origin of fires.
The emergency management certificate provides the student with the fundamentals of an emergency management program. The certificate program will present the four components of the disaster cycle (planning, mitigation, response, and recovery) in the FIRE 2241 course and then apply those fundamentals in subsequent course work. The certificate is applicable to students interested in emergency response to all hazards, and natural and human-made disasters. The knowledge gained will be useful in any field of study including fire, law enforcement, health, and national security. It is applicable to both private and public sectors.
This certificate prepares individuals for assuming the responsibilities of protecting their agency or corporate information systems. The basics of information systems security as well as legal issues and cyber response strategies are reviewed. Computer gaming simulations as well as online attack and defense techniques are presented for student assignments.
Students matriculated in other concentration areas, as well as non-matriculated students, may elect to take the five courses listed below to earn a certificate in victim services administration. Although internships are not required of certificate students, an internship experience is strongly encouraged and will be facilitated at the student’s request.
