Homeland Security

Available on Vincennes campus and online

The Mission of the Vincennes Homeland Security Program is to educate students on national security, terrorism, crisis and emergency management, and corporate loss prevention through excellence and innovation in education and research taught by highly experienced homeland professionals.

Students in the Homeland Security program usually have an associate degree in law enforcement, conservation law enforcement, loss prevention, fire science, emergency management, or emergency medical services, and are looking to take the next step in pursuing their careers. A bachelor's degree in Homeland Security will qualify you for positions in the federal government. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, and the Drug Enforcement Agency are just a few agencies that require four year degrees.

The Homeland Security program at Vincennes University is a four-year bachelor’s degree that students may now enroll in as freshmen. This was expanded for those wishing to complete the entire degree at VU. The program is currently led by Mr. Louis Caprino a retired FBI agent of 29 years.  Anyone interested in gathering more information about the Homeland Security program can contact Mr. Caprino at lcaprino@vinu.edu or stop by his office located on the first floor of the Homeland Security building in the Public Service division office.
