Delivering World Class Emergency Management and Homeland Security Education
Our courses and certificate programs can fit into almost any program of study, complementing your gradute or undergraduate education. We offer courses online and in the classroom, providing maximum flexibility while you work toward your future.
Beyond the Classroom
Get more than a degree! We have opportunities large and small for students to go outside the classroom and experience learning in new ways. Our students have conducted service learning by planning for hurricanes in Haiti, working real disasters in EOCs, training citizens on disaster preparedness in Nepal, and more. Our Disaster Incident Research Team (DIRT) is designed to get students safely into the disaster management environment and learn by doing.
Internships are a key pathway to employment in the field, and our Internship program is robust and effective. Our team of faculty and staff work constantly building relationships with agencies who need interns, developing students for success in the professional environment, and placing qualified students in exciting opportunities. Our students intern in state and local emergency management agencies, U.S. Military Unified Combatant Commands, interagency and military commands, and federal agencies. These opportunies are a critical component to a successful career.
