Overview

The Program

In the Master of Professional Studies in Emergency & Disaster Management (Executive) program at Georgetown University, you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of today’s emergency management landscape while mastering the contemporary communications, critical thinking, and technical skills that position you for success.
