New Security Studies and International Affairs Department at Embry-Riddle Prepares Students for Rapidly Expanding Job Market

When Dr. Jim Ramsay joined the Embry-Riddle faculty in 2006 to launch the Homeland Security academic program at the Daytona Beach, Fla., campus, he welcomed the opportunity to “build something special from scratch, a new field of study, given that there were just a handful of Homeland Security programs nationwide at the time.”

Today, the program is the basis for the newest department on campus, Security Studies and International Affairs (SSIA), which is housed in the state-of-the-art College of Arts and Sciences building. The Homeland Security program continues to expand, with courses that offer advanced learning methodologies, including a required internship, a senior capstone, thesis opportunities and research projects. The career-focused curriculum is being emulated by several schools around the country.
