Lander’s Emergency Management program will train you in the science of management during both natural and man-made disasters. The curriculum takes an interdisciplinary approach that borrows from several academic disciplines and best-practices in this emerging field of study.Designed to fit the busy schedules of first responders and business professionals, courses are planned so that students can finish in six terms (two years), taking two courses per term (including summer). Additionally, the program allows for students to complete courses within one year if their professional responsibilities pull them away from coursework during any given academic term.
