This program offers the student a double major in Emergency & Disaster Management and Business. This will provide the necessary preparations and qualifications to work in both an emergency/disaster vocation and a business environment. The graduate of this double major will have greater career opportunities than either of the majors alone. While this program will allow for a graduate to work in the business world in general, the graduate will have the necessary education to develop the niche of emergency and disaster management.
