Post University’s B.S. in Emergency Management & Homeland Security (EMH) program provides students with a core 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. Equally so, the program will immerse students in modern methodologies used to secure the homeland, including preparation for and response to acts of terrorism, especially the use of weapons of mass destruction. Students will be provided a historical awareness of terrorism, particularly within the United States and its interests abroad. The program will prepare the student to assess risk and vulnerability related to crises, natural and manmade events and terrorism. Core principles and methods of management of natural and man-made disasters will be examined. Students will complete analyses of past crises and disasters as well as pending threats. Students will utilize effective crisis communication techniques using a variety of media services and outlets. The program will focus on developing critical thinking in order for students to make well informed decisions grounded in ethics and leadership. The program emphasizes collaboration with all stakeholders.
