Emergency Management—Track I

In an era of increased awareness of the global impact of natural and man-made disasters, a new leadership approach to emergency management is required. This specialization can prepare you with the skills you need to effectively lead, motivate, and manage others during times of crisis. You will explore the ethical issues inherent to certain situations as well as the art and science of building strong, capable teams.

The Emergency Management specialization will help prepare you to apply for certificates from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Emergency Management Institute.

Track I is a program of study for students who have a master’s degree in criminal justice or a related field. If you have a master's degree in an unrelated discipline, see Track II.
