Through collaboration among faculty, students and the practitioner community, we offer an online leading-edge program that addresses the complex array of 21st century challenges which require thoughtful and informed leadership.

Careers in emergency management and homeland security represent excellent opportunities for those interested in meaningful public service. There are numerous career opportunities at all levels of government, in a wide range of private-sector organizations, and in those nonprofit sector organizations with links to disaster-related services.
The program’s culminating experience, an applied project, provides opportunities for students to make direct and positive impacts in their home communities. By the end of the EMHS degree, graduates will have a well-developed understanding of central concepts and effective practices in the professional domains of emergency management and homeland security. The 33-credit hour program can be completed in as little as one year.
