The mission of the Department of Emergency Management's face-to-face graduate programs is to create a cadre of graduates with extensive theoretical and applied knowledge in emergency management who can advance the emerging profession and emerging academic discipline of emergency management. The program is built on a core of emergency management and methods/theory courses to help students approach the study of hazards and hazard events from a unique emergency management disciplinary perspective that has been developed here at NDSU by faculty with doctoral degrees in emergency management and the students with whom they work. Our approach to education reflects a clear set of concepts and shared definitions of them, theoretical frameworks crafted from synthesis of research from many academic disciplines on a diverse array of hazards and hazard event related topics, and multiple opportunities to apply what these frameworks show us to evaluating policy and practice.
The master's and doctoral degree programs in emergency management at NDSU are campus-based. Potential students are encouraged to arrange a visit the campus with our Graduate Coordinator, Dr. Ge (email@example.com). We arrange visits frequently for prospective students. Most visits involve meetings with faculty and current graduate students, observation of graduate classes, and tours of campus and Fargo.
