Description: The field of Emergency Management is growing rapidly. It stretches in many different directions such as public administration, environmental sciences, social sciences, engineering, public health, and many others. Often administrators and students believe that Emergency Management is just the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This presentation can be utilized as a guide to help everyone, including students, administrators, and enrollment services, understand the diversity of Emergency Management. The presentation sheds light on the many different pathways that lead to and from the core of Emergency Management. It puts Emergency Management in a perspective that can help with career direction, educational advancement, course work collaboration, and program development.
