The College of Public Service and Community Solutions

The community resilience concentration is a part of the Master of Arts in Emergency Management and Homeland Security is offered by the College of Public Service & Community Solutions through ASU Online. This program’s graduates will be well-prepared to utilize public policy and best applicable management practices within their professional areas to develop protection, mitigation and preparedness measures to prevent and/or minimize societal impacts of natural and human-made threats and hazards. Likewise, our graduates will be able to employ necessary management and leadership skills in guiding local or national response to and recovery from any potential emergencies, disasters and other related societal threats. The 33-credit hour program can be completed in as little as one year.

The EMHS community resilience concentration is focused on developing knowledge and expertise pertaining to the interdisciplinary challenges of managing hazards and promoting sustainable practices as related to the functional areas of first respo3nse and emergency/crisis management. Its career path tracks for positions with specific hazards and response management responsibilities in areas such as planning, transportation, environmental quality, public health. The community resilience degree promotes the resilience capacity of urban systems and the physical and social infrastructure systems that support them, and reducing risk associated with natural, and technological disruptions.

This concentration area is designed to meet the career and professional development needs for those students interested in hazards management in general, whether it be natural or technological or intentionally-induced (i.e. terrorism). Developing expertise in hazards resilience cuts across a broad range of professional domains: it is relevant to traditional emergency management organizations, first response and public safety agencies, public health agencies, environmental protection agencies, and so on. Further, developing resilience expertise is useful for individuals with prior expertise and experience relevant to resilience, sustainability and hazards management—such as engineering, risk analysis, or communications—and are seeking to move into a career position more explicitly related to this broad field.
