SoPA and Tulane University are excited to announce the transition back to campus for the fall semester. While we encourage students to continue to meet with advisors, faculty and staff remotely, our offices will be open for limited in-person visits. Beginning Monday August 3, Elmwood offices are open 8:30A.M.– 5:00P.M. Gibson Hall offices will remain closed as Tulane renovates new space for SoPA on the Uptown campus. All faculty and staff are working and available.

Please continue to check your Tulane email, Canvas, the SoPA COVID-19 FAQ, and the Tulane Return to Campus page for updates.

Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Homeland Security Studies

A Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Homeland Security Studies is available to students who have already earned a bachelor's degree, even in an unrelated academic discipline. The certificate program enables students to add to their existing skill set or learn skills in a discipline entirely new to them. This certificate program is designed to teach students practical application of security and emergency management. The federal government, along with every state, mid-to-large city, and county or parish have security management needs. Students will be prepared to work in the fields of emergency management, cyber security, and infrastructure management.
