The MS in Emergency Management program with a specialization in Terrorism and Emergency Management focuses on the history, organizational systems, planning, and response associated with public crises, with an emphasis on terrorism. Students can explore and analyze terrorism and counterterrorism efforts, develop the critical-thinking skills required to address public crises, and study policies that pertain to domestic and international terrorism. Topics include terrorism and public health, bioterrorism, cyber terrorism, risk assessment, and the components of a systemic preparedness infrastructure. Students have an opportunity to analyze the US Patriot Act and similar legislation and policies, and discuss their impact on US constitutional freedoms. The curriculum can also help prepare students to earn certificates from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Emergency Management Institute.
