Emergency Management (EM)

The Emergency Management program’s educational coursework has been developed for each of three key concepts; hazard, risk, and disaster. The program component for hazard and risk (risk management) consists of a framework that explores four states in assessment and management, including Risk Assessment, Control Analysis, Strategy Section and Implementation and Evaluation. In the case of disaster, the students study the different temporal stages in a disaster cycle, including; Mitigation or Prevention, Preparedness, Response and Recovery. The program’s depth and range of practical coursework and experience, provides an EM graduate, the skills for a smooth transition from college to a profession in the emergency management field.
