Course DescriptionThis capstone course is intended as a synthesis of emergency and disaster management concepts and perspectives learned in the previous courses taken in the program and applied to a real-world area of interest. Students will create an original report based on a project they select. Working with a faculty supervisor, participants will define a project topic. Project topics can come from a wide variety of areas but must be executed with an Emergency Management perspective.
Sample Course OutlineDistance Course Outline (subject to change)
This is a project-based, independent study course.
This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.
Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
