About Us

Internship Program Overview

The Emergency Management Internship Program, associated with the Emergency Management and Homeland Security (EMHS) Certificate Program and the Askew School of Public Administration, provides graduate and under-graduate students with guidance and assistance towards completing a successful internship experience with agencies active in Emergency Management and Domestic Preparedness.

Using our close working relationships with the local, state and federal agencies, our program coordinators assist in identifying internship opportunities based on student interest and location preferences.  Due to our relationships with placement agencies, EM&HS interns are evaluated prior to acceptance in the program using the highest intellectual and professional standards expected of anyone representing our program and Florida State University.

To insure EMHS interns meet the aforementioned standards, prospective students are required to take the 1 credit hour "Professional Pathways in Emergency Management" course the semester prior to interning.  The prerequisite for "Pathways" is the EMHS certificate core course, "Foundations in Emergency Management".  Both courses must be "passed" by EMHS standards to recieve our assistance in internship placement.

Watch the video on the "Professional Pathways in Emergency Management" course.

Those interested in an internship should contact us 2 semesters prior to the semester anticipated for the internship.  Our Internship Coordinator is:

Rob McDaniel, Senior Fellow
