College Program Directory


  • Journal of Emergency Management



We are pleased to present the inaugural edition of our Journal of Emergency Management Higher Education Program Directory.

Our goal was simple, to create an authoritative directory where persons looking towards emergency management could get comprehensive data on all the higher education programs in the field. This profession has a diverse number of entry points. From post-secondary school to professionals changing careers or leaders in the field seeking additional education, individuals need information to pick the programs that will allow for their success.

The concept grew out of my recent travels with my sons to local "college fairs" in the Boston area. As we walked the isles past hundreds of colleges, there were signs for "STEM," "Journalism," "Medicine," "Biotech" and more, but there was not one sign promoting "Emergency Management" or "Disaster Sciences." I  thought that was a real tragedy as we need leading edge trained professionals to expand the disaster sciences. We need new thought leaders who can do leading-edge research in the four phases of emergency management: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery and roll that into practical applications that will help reduce the exploding costs of disasters both in people and property.
