Denver, Colo.

The graduate concentration in Emergency Management and Homeland Security (EMHS) provides advanced education in the management of emergencies, hazards, disasters, and homeland security. The EMHS program is designed to meet the needs of students who wish to work or currently work in the field of emergency management and homeland security. Students interested in obtaining a concentration in EMHS within a Master of Public Administration (MPA) program must apply and enroll in the MPA program within the School of Public Affairs (SPA) and must adhere to all MPA program requirements.

The EMHS program applies an interdisciplinary approach to education that

   1. emphasizes high-level skills of critical thinking, learning, and adaptation, and
   2. focuses on the all-hazards emergency management model (encompassing natural hazards, technological hazards, and terrorism).

Students completing the EMHS concentration program will have the knowledge and skills necessary to assess and manage a broad range of hazards and disasters, and to understand the policy environment in which emergency management occurs.
