New Jersey City University (NJCU) is a National Center of Academic Excellence in Security Studies. One of less than 160 Nation-wide, NJCU is THE only one solely focused on: National Security, Corporate Security, Information Assurance/Cyber Security, and their synthesis with the responsibilities of Leadership, Management, and Policy. 

In a post-9/11 era, current and future leaders from all aspects of public safety, including law enforcement, security, fire service, emergency management, business, and public health, need to understand the concepts, theories and methods applicable to contemporary risk, terror and vulnerability. Students are increasingly pursuing educational avenues allowing them to function effectively in the new  terror environment, where they are able to develop the competencies crucial to collaborate and coordinate with various organizational levels and disciplines.

In pursuit of the war on terror both at home and abroad, lack of long-term planning may be the most dangerous threat of all. New Jersey City University (NJCU) has demonstrated a long history of contemporary educational offerings. It is the only institution of higher education in the State of New Jersey offering a bachelor’s degree in Security, and has done so long before the tragedy of 9/11. In considering the needs of current and future professionals in the field of Security, NJCU has initiated a strategy emphasizing prevention over response. It is time to create a common defense: a resilient generation of security professionals prepared to cope with a multitude of potential crises and scenarios. One vehicle of change is the development of rigorous, comprehensive undergraduate and graduate academic programs incorporating intellectual debate, inclusion of diverse backgrounds, experience and views, and the development and demonstration of critical, practitioner-based competencies.

The degree programs are designed for practicing security leaders, as well as for those students who seek careers in this field.  All course work is also offered at our satellite programs in Wall, NJ through the NJ Coastal Communiversity. and at Middlesex Community College.  Many courses are also offered on-line.
