This Emergency & Disaster Management MS program is designed to educate medical, public safety and defense professionals working in the public and private sectors to plan for, respond to, and mitigate the effects of natural and manmade disasters, including pandemics, terrorism, war, tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, wildfires, volcanoes, hazardous materials and major power grid disruptions.


In addition to a core curriculum that includes such courses as Foundations in Emergency Management and Public Health Implications of Disasters, and elective courses such as Foundations in Homeland Security and Defense, Business and Crisis Continuity, and Emergency Preparedness for Special Needs Population, our program will prepare you to manage and develop the increasingly complex disaster management and preparedness requirements of the 21st century.

The MS is offered as an online distance program or an on-campus program.
