Helping you reach your goals is our shared priority.
In the world of emergency operations, conditions change, as does the knowledge needed to lead the response. Our programs are designed to help professionals stay on top of current trends and learn new skills from a respected university. Our degrees are designed for students who want to study and continue building their career. Our faculty maintains both high academic excellence as well as first-hand experience as practitioners in their respective fields, providing students with real-world perspective.
From the smallest incident to the largest catastrophe, our emergency and disaster management programs emphasize a whole community approach. This is one of the core foundations of emergency management. Our programs offer professionals the resources to prepare for careers in emergency management, emergency planning, and disaster operations. AMU adheres to the United States Fire Administration's Fire & Emergency Services Higher Education model program, and our programs meet the academic requirements of the USFA's Executive Fire Officers Program.
