Emergency services organizations are a critical part of our society. Response to and protection from fire, hazardous materials, public safety threats, and other emergencies are crucial to the public welfare. The management and leadership of public safety personnel, whether in law enforcement, fire service, emergency medical services, emergency telecommunications, or corrections, are vital to the success of an organization in carrying out its mission of protecting and serving the public.
To meet the critical need for trained professionals who can respond effectively to emergency situations, University College offers the interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate in Emergency Management. If you’re interested in emergency service administration and management, this program is for you.

Willumstad School of Business; the Schools of Nursing and Social Work; the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies; and the College of Arts of Sciences. The program can be completed within one year. The plan of study includes five required core courses and a choice of one emergency management elective.
