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.
Unlike many response-focused emergency management programs, our degree takes a sophisticated and holistic approach to the field. You’ll examine the full disaster lifecycle—with a particular focus on preparedness and recovery—within a U.S. context. Designed for entry- and mid-level professionals, our program offers flexible options to fit your schedule. You can take classes online, on campus, or through a combination of both—so you don’t have to interrupt your career to earn your degree.
