Emergency preparedness degree programs as well as courses in emergency management are becoming more and more popular in the United States. In fact, careers in emergency preparedness and management are projected to increase by 20 percent or more in the next few years. Now, courses in this field are more available in colleges and universities across the United States than ever before. As a matter of fact, there are now many accredited programs for homeland security degrees and emergency management certificate programs available to interested individuals, including undergraduate and graduate degree options. The career outlook in emergency preparedness and management is very bright. The labor market is continuously seeking for professionals who know how to plan, strategize, and implement solutions during crisis situations. With proper education and training, anyone can be a successful emergency preparedness instructor, emergency program manager or director, director of security, emergency operations center chief, risk management expert, hospital coordinator, or technical training supervisor, among others. Indeed, there is no lack of opportunities for those who wish to pursue a career in this special area of study. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s 13th Annual Emergency Management Higher Education Conference, there are now over 180 emergency preparedness degree and management degree programs offered to people by the nation’s higher education landscape. What is more, there are now approximately a hundred more colleges and universities that are investigating, proposing, developing, and considering some kind of emergency, disaster, or hazard management programs in their curriculum. Colleges and universities offer a number of degree programs, from associate to graduate. Of course, the requirements vary from one school to another. While there are broad degrees in areas like management, technology, finance, and human resources, schools also offer specialty courses in homeland security, disaster recovery planning, crime scene investigation, incident command or weapons of mass destruction. Students are advised to closely examine the offered courses so they can see if their personal and professional goals will be satisfied by taking up a particular degree. College degree programs are varied, depending on the school. Some are highly specialized, especially at the certificate or associate degree level. Students with limited time are often attracted to these emergency preparedness degree programs because of the specific skill sets they can gain related to specialties such as emergency medical services, law enforcement, firefighting, etc. So what are some of the courses that you can take to make it to the exciting field of emergency preparedness and management? Different schools and universities offer different programs although the most common would be the following: Bachelor of Science in Emergency Management, Bachelor of Arts in Emergency and Disaster Management, Bachelor of Applied Science Degree in Emergency Management, Bachelor of Science in Crisis and Disaster Management, Bachelor of Science in Emergency Readiness and Response Management, Bachelor of Arts in Disaster Management and Relief Program, Bachelor of Arts in Homeland Security and Emergency Management, Bachelor of Applied Studies in Fire and Emergency Response, and Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences, among others. Students can expect an emergency preparedness degree or management degree to give them the skills and knowledge necessary find a good job in the field. On the other hand, employers can expect graduates to be equipped with the right skills and knowledge to make up for their lack of experience. While these are normal expectations on both sides, the reality remains that a degree can never replace experience. With that said, it’s very important for students to get as much experience as they can so they will not be overwhelmed when they step out of the school and face the real thing. Nobody knows when, where, or how bad the next disaster might be. But this much is for sure: those that have taken any steps towards being prepared will fare better than those that ignore this advice. If the SHTF, don't be the person holding up a sign looking for help, instead why not be the person with a life raft.
