What a journey it has been with the TSA Associates Program! I have really enjoyed the classes that have been offered through this program. The three CORE classes are very informative and give a great insight into different aspects of Homeland Security beyond what we see at work daily with TSA. The professors as well as the program personnel at DMACC are knowledgeable, will do all they can to help you along the way, and are such a pleasure to work with!

Throughout my journey with DMACC, I was amazed with the amount of information professors possessed and their willingness to share that information with their students. Professors were available and flexible with students during course activities and promoted a learning environment that was supportive to the student’s needs. Additionally, the DMACC administrative staff was phenomenal and ensured my course selections aligned with my educational goals (Associates Degree).

With support from my family, friends, coworkers and the outstanding staff at DMACC, I am happy to report that I finished my AAS in Criminal Justice/Homeland Security Concentration in the Spring of 2020. Every class that I took not only gave me a better depth and breadth of knowledge and understanding of not only the world around me but also gave me something that I could positively incorporate into my TSA career to make me a better officer/team-mate and also to help other coworkers develop their skills and talents.
