					Columbia Southern University – Master of Science in Emergency Services Management

Columbia Southern University is offering a Master of Science degree in Emergency Services
Management. The program is designed to produce an educated, multi-disciplined, proactive
group of professionals who must evaluate risk analysis and prevention, secure communications
reliability, and provide for mitigation along with economic and social recovery in the face of
disastrous natural or man-made catastrophic events.

Emergency managers shoulder a great deal of responsibility during emergencies. They must
understand the risks in a variety of emergency situations and be prepared to act as soon as
trouble and disaster arises and threatens the public and our communities. This program provides
professional leaders in the fire science, criminal justice, safety and environmental fields with the
knowledge base to assume Emergency Management roles in the federal, state, county, private
corporate or consulting sectors of our economic and business infrastructure.
