CHS has developed three graduate certificate programs, Homeland Defense, Security Intelligence and Disaster Public Health. Students completing the four courses in either the Homeland Defense or Security Intelligence programs will receive a graduate certificate which is awarded through the UCCS School of Public Affairs. The Defense and Intelligence courses can all be used towards a Master of Public Administration degree, or as electives in other graduate degree programs. Students completing the four Disaster Public Health courses and a capstone project will be awarded a graduate certificate through the UCCS Beth-El College of Nursing and Health Sciences. These courses can also be applied to a variety of programs offered through Beth-El.
