University of New Haven, Emergency Management
Before September 11, 2001, the job market for emergency management was already expanding quickly. The movement of populations into the “Sunshine States” and into risk-prone areas such as coastlines, floodplains, and forests made natural events such as hurricanes, wildfires, and tornadoes far more threatening and challenging to communities and businesses. After September 11, terrorism in all forms — including biological and chemical — became a crucial and inextricable part of emergency management.
Only the second such program in New England, the M.S. in Emergency Management program offers 36 credits of interdisciplinary coursework — delivered both online and on campus — that prepares students for successful roles in disaster mitigation and prevention. Students in the program complete eight required core courses covering topics in hazard mitigation, catastrophe readiness, disaster recovery, emergency incident management, and more.
An additional four courses are required for the degree and can be completed as electives or as requirements to satisfy a graduate certificate in criminal justice management, fire science, public administration, national security administration, or another area.
This graduate program is designed to develop emergency management and related professionals grounded in emergency management principles, social and natural science knowledge, administrative and managerial skills, and technical and personal competencies. The program will contribute to the professionalization of the emergency management community and help cultivate a culture of preparedness and prevention through developing skills to build community capacity to solve problems in emergency situations.
