Emergency Management & Homeland Security Minor

The minor in Emergency Management & Homeland Security provides students with a foundational understanding of the four phases of emergency management: mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. Students will develop skills to plan and prepare for pending emergencies, manage operations during an emergency, and conduct recovery efforts after an emergency. The program will prepare the student to assess risk and vulnerability related to crises, such as natural and manmade events and terrorism. Students will gain a historical awareness of terrorism, particularly within the United States and its interests abroad, and attain an understanding of ongoing efforts to secure the homeland.

The five 3-credit courses lead the student through the basics of emergency management and homeland security and on to more complex issues and topics in these interrelated fields.
