Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, August 26, 2021

Hundreds of community colleges, four-year universities and postgraduate programs have begun offering degrees and certificates in emergency preparedness, counterterrorism and security. Students study topics from political science and psychology to engineering and biotechnology to prepare for possible disasters.

“Homeland security will be the biggest government employer in the next decade or so,” says Steven David, chair of the graduate certificate program in homeland security at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, which also offers a master’s in government with a concentration in homeland security. “America continues to face threats, and terrorism will never go away,” David says.

Yeah, right. I foresee all this security training resulting in a bunch of overqualified mall security guards when these graduates are scrounging for jobs a few years from now.
