Minor in Emergency Management and Homeland Security

Emhs 1

The Minor in Emergency Management and Homeland Security provides training covering the comprehensive disaster management cycle (emergency planning, mitigation, response and recovery). Students completing this minor will gain additional insight and knowledge that supports employment in various federal, state and local government organizations and their partner organizations such as:

  • the Environmental Protection Agency
  • the Occupational Health and Safety Administration
  • the Orange County Emergency Management Division
  • the Federal Emergency Management Agency
  • the Homeland Security Agency.

Students must be enrolled in a degree-seeking program to declare this minor. The program consists of five core courses (15 credits) and one restricted elective course (3 credits).

For the most current information about this program, please see the official online UCF Undergraduate Catalog.

There are no additional requirements for admission into the undergraduate public administration programs beyond admission to UCF. Students pursuing an undergraduate certificate or minor must be in a degree-seeking program and the certificate or minor is awarded at completion of the degree program. Students may declare a Minor in Emergency Management and Homeland Security online through their student center. 

There is no program-specific application deadline for this degree as it is an open enrollment program; however, students must comply with all UCF and College of Health and Public Affairs procedures and deadlines.

The hallmark of our work is our strong community engagement.
