Emergency Management Degree Approved, Will Start Fall 2012
Omaha - This week, Nebraska's Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education (CCPE) approved a new Bachelor of Science degree in Emergency Management for the College of Public Affairs and Community Service (CPACS) starting with the Fall 2012 semester.
The approval of the new degree programs follows February’s approval of Emergency Management and Fire Protection concentrations to the UNO’s Bachelor of General Studies degree, which is also housed in CPACS.
“The field of Emergency Management is rapidly evolving, and needs more people with academic training in the profession,” said John Bartle, CPACS acting dean, in February. “Salaries are good, and locating this program in the nationally-ranked School of Public Administration provides a solid foundation for future development.”
The Emergency Management degree will focus on the policies and infrastructure needs of cities, states, and countries from police to airport security.
For more information on the degree or other degrees offered by CPACS, contact Pat O’Neil at 402.554.3683.
