Public universities currently offering the Foundations in Homeland Security and Disaster Preparedness courses are NIU and Western Illinois University. NIU's foundations courses will be available through all Illinois Homeland Security Education Alliance (IHSEA) universities later this year. The course is offered as an interactive online course.
Several Illinois public universities have expressed interest in joining the IHSEA. If you are a student at a participating university, the foundations course may be offered at your university. Check the IHSEA universities listing for updates on your university's involvement.
If your university is not currently a member of the IHSEA, you will need to apply and register with NIU or WIU.
