About

The Bachelor of Science in Security and Risk Analysis (SRA) offered at Pennsylvania State University in the College of Information Sciences and Technology responds to the expanding need for a highly trained analytic workforce to address a wide range of security and risk domains including national/homeland security, emergency and disaster management, law and crime.

Overview

Security and Risk Analysis program at Pennsylvania State University prepares students with core competence in four knowledge areas:

  • understanding the fundamentals of security, risk, analytic methods and decision support for the purpose of recognizing, articulating, and addressing analytic needs;

  • applying data analytics, methods, and tools (structured analytics; data gathering and manipulation; visual analytics; analytic judgements and presentation) to derive and communicate insights and actionable knowledge;
  • the legal, ethical, and professional issues within which analytics of security and risk are conducted.
