About JHSE


The vision of the Journal of Homeland Security Education is to be the premier source of peer-reviewed information for homeland security education practice.


The Journal of Homeland Security Education (JHSE) is a refereed professional electronic journal focused on homeland security (HS) education practice. The purpose is to provide an environment for discussing issues relevant to homeland security pedagogy/andragogy from the associate to doctoral degree level. The JHSE affords opportunities for exchange of ideas concerning development and advances in teaching and learning in the emerging discipline of homeland security. The Journal of Homeland Security Education is free and available to schools, organizations, individuals, and libraries engaged in HS education.
