Major emergencies and disasters require knowledgeable and capable leaders to guide organizations and communities through the complexities of responding to and recovering from tragedy. The Emergency Management Program is designed to prepare future and current emergency managers to meeting the challenges of tomorrow’s disaster. Students may choose from the diploma or associate’s degree program depending upon their goals. At the completion of the program, students will have achieved many of the required prerequisite courses for the Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) Certified Emergency Manager credential.
When asked about his program of choice, Daniel Whitehead stated, “I picked the Emergency Management Program because I enjoy helping others while being part of the public service community. Through the program, I get to connect with others. My advice for incoming students is to remember there are people here to help you. Reach out to your advisors, instructors, and fellow students when the going gets tough.” 10/22/2020
