Emergency Management & Homeland Security
Our goal is to empower students with the basic knowledge of the field of emergency management and homeland security.
The Homeland Security Certificate, the Emergency Management Certificate and the Emergency Management Degree Program are currently suspended and not accepting new students.
The mission of the Community College of Rhode Island Emergency Management/Homeland Security Program is to empower students with the basic knowledge of the field of emergency management and homeland security. The program is a well-rounded balance of core courses and general education requirements that serve the diverse needs of these fields. This will enable students to serve their communities by coordinating and integrating all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the capability to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from threatened or actual natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other human-caused disasters.
