The graduate concentration in Emergency Management and Homeland Security is available as a concentration within the MPA and MCJ programs, or as a stand-alone certificate for non-degree students.  This concentration, which requires 15 credit hours (5 courses), provides advanced education in the management of emergencies, hazards, disasters, and homeland security.  Students completing this sequence will have the knowledge and skills necessary to assess and manage a broad range of hazards and disasters, and to understand the policy environment in which emergency management occurs. 


Students take two of the following three required courses as well as three elective courses approved by their advisor. The three elective courses may be drawn from the student’s  particular area of interest, such as policy and management, spatial analysis and quantitative assessment, or public safety.
