Concepts of public policy and management, criminal justice, science, and technology are blended together to enhance and foster critical thinking within the general field of study.
Based upon integrative science, this degree transcends the confining boundaries of traditional programs and emphasizes a systems approach. More specifically, an all hazards/all-threats orientation provides you with a generalist perspective which is critically important for today’s and tomorrow’s disaster managers. You will participate in a culminating experience, which is a mentored applied project tying theory to practice.
