Student Activities

Course Development...New courses will provide students with the background and history of the DHS. In addition to a theoretical and historical understanding of the threats to the United States, the courses will explore the ways in which technology can be used to address challenges to homeland security.


Student Funding...HS-SEER program students will receive a monthly stipend for a 12-month period; 9-month academic year and 3-month summer research. In exchange for the financial support students will engage in 20 hours of research activity each week. During the summer students will participate in research internships at START. In addition to the START opportunities we will seek to identify additional summer experiences for students within the government, industry, or government national labs based upon students’ interests and future goals.
