Emergency Administration and Planning
The Bachelor of Science program in Emergency Administration and Planning offers an innovative curriculum emphasizing professional competency for undergraduates interested in a career in the emergency and disaster management fields. The seven core courses equip majors with the basic knowledge in emergency preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation. Electives enrich this core competency with additional courses in technological applications, international disasters, the needs of special populations in disasters, and the complex interaction between terrorism and disaster management. All pre-career students also complete an internship that prepares them for a full-time appointment. EADP majors also benefit from an operational Emergency Operations Center (EOC) that serves as a state-of-the-art laboratory for experiential learning.
The department offers a limited number of undergraduate public administration courses (PADM) as a minor field of study in support of a related major, or for students who seek to understand more about the field of study.
