Graduate Certificates in Emergency Management

SoPA’s 100% online certificate programs help prepare professionals for leadership roles in emergency management in both the public and private sectors. The program draws heavily from the expertise developed in New Orleans, a U.S. municipality that has a great amount of experience in dealing with natural hazards and planning. Take four courses to earn a “stackable” certificate; all four courses may be applied toward a Master of Professional Studies in Emergency Management. If you would like to pursue an MPS degree and apply your certificate towards the degree completion, please contact the Program Director for next steps. The process is simple and can be completed without reapplying.
