Each semester, the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security offers academic externships and employs students as research assistants – both are opportunities to gain hands-on experience while learning from experts in the field.
Externs earn credit toward their degree while addressing cutting-edge issues relating to laws and policies governing emergency response, counterterrorism, cyber threats, and public health emergencies.
Research assistants employed by CHHS have the opportunity to expand their knowledge by engaging in research that supports a wide array of staff projects ranging from exercise planning to policy development, to government consulting, and legal analysis.
