Future-focused and in-demand careers

With access to the world’s most comprehensive collection of academic programs focusing on aviation, aerospace, and security, you’ll prepare for emerging fields alongside faculty who are industry experts. Most come to ERAU after holding positions at top corporations and agencies like the CIA, Boeing, NASA, and American Airlines. Since your professors have significant professional experience, your classes will be infused with real-life scenarios to better prepare you for the workplace.

Our one-of-a-kind Global Security and Intelligence Studies program immerses students in challenging war game scenarios. This blows a standard criminal justice degree out of the water. We’re putting students in hands-on, frontline situations they will face as intelligence analysts.
