Abstract

Since the events of September 11, 2001, experts in emergency management, disaster recovery, and global security have been in high demand. Among those professionals experiencing an increased demand for their expertise are members of the National Guard. These professionals must meet the challenges of managing complex emergencies that result from a wide range of disasters from floods to terrorist attacks. Advancement requires not only experience, but also an increasing level of education. Yet, it can be difficult during extended deployments to obtain additional education and training. Our university, in keeping with its commitment to global education, has developed a graduate curriculum that enables National Guard personnel to pursue a Master of Administrative Science degree or a Graduate Certificate in Emergency Management Administration or Global Security and Terrorism Studies while continuing to meet domestic and national security requirements anywhere in the world.
