Graduate Certificates in Security Management

SoPA’s 100% online certificate programs are among only a few certificate programs in the country focused solely on private sector security management. Southern Louisiana is home to nuclear, oil, gas and chemical companies with robust security needs. New Orleans is known as a municipality that has vast experience dealing with planning and executing large events, expertise that is brought to bear as part of this program. Take four courses to earn a “stackable” certificate; all four courses may be applied toward a Master of Professional Studies in Security Management. If you would like to pursue an MPS degree and apply your certificate towards the degree completion, please contact the Program Director for next steps. The process is simple and can be completed without reapplying.
