Disaster and Emergency Management, Graduate Certificate Locations  

The Graduate Certificate in Disaster and Emergency Management complements the existing graduate programs offered by the University’s Hauptmann School of Public Affairs which is housed within the College of Management. The public’s continued concern for efficient governmental response to natural and man-made disasters, along with the recent significant investment in emergency management activities, requires knowledgeable public managers, including managers transitioning from other areas of expertise. The array of potential hazardous events that now confront public managers includes Homeland Security issues, failures of complex technology and a wide range of natural hazards. Students possessing a Graduate Certificate in Disaster and Emergency Management will be well-prepared to engage the public policy issues surrounding these community hazards.
