The demand for aviation security professionals continues to outstrip the available supply of individuals with the advanced education and skills required in today’s society. That’s why Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has developed the first-ever online Bachelor’s Degree in Aviation Security. This program is offered through Embry-Riddle Worldwide and is ideal for high school and two-year college graduates, security professionals, and active or transitioning military.

The Aviation Security curriculum is designed to meet the needs and demands of the aviation and aerospace industry, as well as the security profession as a whole. Students will be introduced to both the science and practical application of aviation security with courses of study in airport security, airline security, general aviation security, corporate security, physical security, aviation legislation, airport management, and national security and intelligence. You will also be offered a general curriculum that provides for a well-rounded educational experience.

Completion of this degree program prepares you to test for the Airport Security Coordinator exam and the ASIS International Certified Protection Professional exam.
