Thank you for requesting a meeting!
Nova Southeastern University offers a Master of Science in Disaster and Emergency Management. This master’s degree is unique in that it offers a curriculum that each student can customize to their own interests and needs. The degree offers six different concentrations (cyber security, maritime safety and security, public health, criminal justice, fire service operations, and environmental hazards). Students can choose a concentration or take electives for a more general degree. The program of study culminates in a community research practicum which can include a research project or internship. All courses are offered online in the evening to allow for as little disruption to those who already have a full-time career. The problems faced by today’s emergency coordinators and professionals are more complicated. As such, the need for professionals who can manage these large and multifaceted incidents has become more important than ever before. Incidents like the Southside condo collapse in Miami, the wildfires in California, and setting up and operating COVID-19 testing and vaccination sites are all examples of operations overseen by today’s emergency manager.
