The major in Security Management concentrates on the analysis of security vulnerabilities and the administration of programs designed to reduce losses in public institutions and private corporations. The program prepares students for careers as managers, consultants and entrepreneurs. Applicants are required to submit an application through the CUNY Student Portal rather than submitting the John Jay Online application.
Learning Outcomes. Students will:
- Critique and evaluate the origins and current structure of security management within corporations, not-for-profit institutions, and the government.
- Discern and differentiate concepts of situational crime prevention, rational choice, theory, and criminological tenets to understanding crime and to evolving countermeasures for the control of loss and disorder.
- Weigh and assess common areas of occupational proficiency for security executives: data protection, emergency planning and response, homeland defense, and legal liability.
- Discover and apply tools to be effective in achieving those goals, particularly in areas where current practices are deficient, such as information protection, security technology, legal justice, and safety services.
- Develop, support, and enhance writing and verbal communication skills through relevant classroom assignments.
The security management internship will allow students to apply the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to a workplace experience. Opportunities typically are available in private security guard and investigative businesses, corporate security and loss prevention departments of large enterprises, and crime control units within law enforcement. Interns meet for at least 15 hours of class time with a faculty member as well as complete at least 96 hours in the field.
