image Bottom line: the CHDS program immediately draws forth the magnitude of the homeland security challenges facing the nation. Its interdisciplinary approach and academic rigor provides an outstanding background on the broad base of issues, however, the true learning experience stems from the realization that there are many obstacles, challenges, and trade-offs in homeland security. The program provides the basis to analyze current issues in-depth and most importantly, it allows someone to look beyond the crisis de jour to anticipate future implementation issues.
