					       Changes to the Certificate Program in Emergency Management

Date: February 27, 2007

To:  All students enrolled in the Certificate Program in Emergency
Management or considering applying for entry.

From: David Etkin, Coordinator of the Certificate Program in Emergency
Management

Discussion:
The Certificate in Emergency Management was first offered in Fall 2005.
Following its first year of operation the faculty felt that it was important to make
some changes, in particular reducing the number of credits from 45 to 24, and
the introduction of electives. On Thursday February 22 the Senate authorized
these changes, which will take effect in September 2007. The new program
takes place within the context of the development of a Master of Arts in Disaster
and Emergency Management (offered in the Fall of 2007, pending OCGS
approval) and a Bachelor of Arts in Disaster and Emergency Management (in
development).

The revised certificate program consists of the following:

Core Requirements: 15 credits
   · AK/ADMS 3700 3.00 Fundamentals of Emergency Management
   · AK/ADMS 3701 3.00 Emergency Management: Hazard, Vulnerability and

      Response, Recovery
   · AK/ADMS 3703 3.00 Business Continuity
