Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Department

The Emergency Preparedness minor provides students with an “all hazards” approach to the emergency preparedness process which includes understanding the core tenets of emergency management: preparedness, prevention, response, recovery and mitigation. Students will develop skills in planning and preparing for emergencies, the management of operations during an emergency, the implementation of recovery efforts after an emergency, and the after action assessment process. Students will also have opportunities to develop essential skills such as ethical decision making, critical thinking, analytical inquiry, strategic planning, and risk and vulnerability assessments associated with natural and man-made disasters and terrorism. Key principles and methods of incident management of various types of disasters, including the collaboration with all stakeholders, will be examined. Students will have the opportunity to understand the emergency preparedness process in the context of a Christian worldview.
