The emergency management and homeland security minor provide you with a foundational understanding of the four phases of emergency management: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. You 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.
