Whether responding to hurricanes, terrorist attacks, or hazmat spills, officials need the tools and information to establish command and control, coordinate communication, evacuate citizens, and execute clean-up operations to protect human and wildlife populations and natural resources. American Military University offers its Emergency and Disaster Management curriculum entirely online, allowing industry professionals the flexibility to balance a bachelor's or master's degree, or graduate certificate within their existing responsibilities.
Students learn career-relevant practices from expert professors, many who are frontline leaders having commanded emergency and disaster management operations in the United States and overseas. Students in this program are actively involved in affiliated programs such as Masters of Disaster and the Golden Key Honor Society. They collaborate as part of a tightknit community of professionals who have dedicated their lives to making a difference to humankind when disaster strikes.
