Disasters, pandemics, climate change, and other human-made events challenge our communities and require coordinated and efficient emergency response. As a professional in the field of Emergency Management, these challenges offer you the opportunity to help communities and businesses mitigate, prepare, respond, and recover.

The Bachelor of Emergency Management degree program provides the opportunity to develop necessary planning competencies, professional skills and required technical knowledge needed for a career in emergency management. This four-year honours degree program offers a clear pathway to many successful and exciting career opportunities in the public and private sectors including municipal, provincial, and federal jurisdictions.
