HOMELAND SECURITY AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
Significant changes have occurred since September 2001. The Homeland Security and Emergency Management program is designed to address those changes and enhance the ability of individuals to prevent and respond safely and recover from natural or man-made disasters.
This program has been carefully designed with input from employers who know the demand of emergency management. In short, careers in emergency preparedness and response and environmental health and safety are in demand. Those benefiting from the associate degree are first responders, firefighters, military personnel, corrections and law enforcement professionals, emergency managers, those in the health care professions, as well as corporate and government workers.
