HLS 542 - Emergency Management in Homeland Security

This course is founded on the premise that effective homeland security leaders must possess a comprehensive understanding of emergency management principles, practices, strategies, and methodologies. This course introduces students to the dynamic field of emergency management and then works to deepen student understanding through the use of case study. Students learn to view emergency management and disaster from an administrative, political, social, and economic perspective. Interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, legal, political, and policy issues are examined. Students learn how emergency managers operate before, during, and after a manmade, accidental, or naturally occurring disaster.
