Response - Mitigation - Recovery
Disasters occur at the intersections of the physical/natural environment, the social/human
environment, and man-made environments. Recognizing that many disciplines explore
the components of disaster, The Emergency Management Program focuses on synthesizing
and integrating the various elements of emergency management.
The integration of physical and human dimensions of disaster using a holistic and
applied approach to learning provides students with inter- and cross-disciplinary
experiences. Such experiences are uncommon among previous generations of emergency
practitioners and this program seeks to impart a holistic perspective for emergency
Consequently, considerable attention is focused on avoiding “silos” during response,
planning, and recovery efforts by creating an interdisciplinary learning environment
that will equip students with experience and skills to excel in a holistic emergency
The Emergency Management Program is your chance to plug into a program that is going
to provide the skills to become a leader in providing emergency and recovery services,
one of the fastest growing careers in the 21st century.
