About

The Emergency and Crisis Management program of University of Central Florida is designed to prepare individuals to practice as highly trained practitioners in the emergency management field.

Overview

The students of the Emergency and Crisis Management program of University of Central Florida will develop core competencies, including: resiliency, hazard mitigation and analysis, disaster response and recovery, emergency preparedness and planning, fiscal management, communication, intergovernmental administration, geographic information systems, legal and ethical decision making, cultural competency and diversity, and general emergency management.

The frequency of man-made and natural disasters has dramatically increased since the 1990s; emergency and disaster declarations in the U.S. reflect it. Florida is the fifth highest state with 67 major disaster declarations between 1953 and 2015. For communities to be prepared for, respond to, recover from, and mitigate these disasters, an educated workforce of emergency management specialists is required. Students in UCF’s Master in Emergency and Crisis Management program will learn and demonstrate the competencies required to lead and manage in this dynamic and complex profession.

The Emergency and Crisis Management MECM may be completed fully online, although not all elective options or program prerequisites may be offered online. Newly admitted students choosing to complete this program exclusively via UCF online classes may enroll with a reduction in campus-based fees.

International students (F or J visa) are required to enroll in a full-time course load of 9 credit hours during the fall and spring semesters. Only 3 of the 9 credit hours may be taken in a completely online format.
