Masters in Emergency & Disaster Management

There are certain skills that must be learned in order to manage natural disasters, system-wide crises, or human-provoked catastrophes. You can learn what you need to know with a Masters in Emergency and Disaster Management. This prestigious degree can be earned following an undergraduate degree in a health field. Emergency and disaster management is usually associated with the field of Public Health, but it is a more specialized area. You will specifically learn how to handle emergency situations, how to deal with risks and how to avoid such circumstances altogether. You should possess natural problem solving, management and communications skills to succeed in this program.

Earning an effective degree in emergency management is one you will be able to use both professionally and in your own personal life. When disaster strikes, everyone will turn to you and your calmly compiled collection of skills. If you want to be the person in charge during a natural or other disaster, you need to complete one of the many Emergency and Disaster Management Master’s Programs available either in a traditional classroom setting or online. This latter option is very popular for busy students who want to create their own school schedule and complete assignments at their own pace. Plus, online classes presented by accredited universities are often less expensive than brick-and-mortar college courses.

Many jobs available to you after graduation will be government jobs. However, you also have the option of obtaining a position within the private sector. Earning a master’s degree can be helpful in protective service work, but the degree is entirely necessary in most research positions. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, a management specialist can expect to earn about $50,000 annually. The number of available jobs through 2012 is expected to increase 18.3%.
