Will you make a difference? You will when you gain knowledge from instructors who have tactical experience in incident command, when you build firsthand familiarity with state-of-the-art software and hardware in surveillance and monitoring, and when you network and share lessons with colleagues, policy makers, and other officials.

The Master of Science in Threat and Response Management is designed to prepare public health professionals, law enforcement officials, fire and emergency personnel, medical and nursing professionals, and policy makers to respond to and recover from complex incidents regardless of their size or cause. These incidents can range from terrorist attacks; biological, chemical, radiological and nuclear threats; natural disasters; and disease outbreaks. Upon completion of the core requirements, students choose one of two concentrations—Scientific/Threat or Administrative/Response Preparedness—to further focus their studies.
