Abstract

The dawn of the 21st century brought with it recognition of the challenge presented by terrorism. To address this challenge, there has been an invigoration of national and multinational security efforts. The academic communities across the Atlantic have taken notice of the need for research and instruction in a Homeland Security (HS) based curriculum. U.S. universities have largely developed entire HS academic programs, but this has not been replicated in the European Union (EU). This article analyzes aspects of HS education provision in the United States and EU and examines the impact of new information and communication technologies upon HS programs.
