image Though this program is intended primarily for senior homeland security officials, don’t be intimidated if you are relatively junior in your organization. If you are willing to devote time and effort, and you have the academic credentials, leadership potential, and confidence to succeed, apply for this school! I had to apply 5 times, and now have graduated and my thesis was nominated for the best thesis in my cohort. You will compete against people with much more experience than you, but if you can articulate how you will contribute to homeland security and defense, go for it.
