The Graduate Diploma (GD) in Disaster and Emergency Management program is a one-year interdisciplinary degree dedicated to educating both aspiring and existing disaster and emergency management professionals. The program explores the theoretical foundations of disaster and emergency management as a growing field of practice and study. The program emphasizes an integrated and holistic approach to disaster and emergency management built on the understanding that disasters are more than hazards, and are products of the inter-relationship and mutual construction of the environmental, social, economic, and political spheres. This approach supports the notion that disaster and emergency management processes and practices can and should contribute to risk reduction, community resilience and sustainable communities.

Delivery Model

Online Learning
The majority of this program is experienced through online learning. Online courses enable you to meet the demands of work and family while studying. Using our web-based learning platform, you will access your reading materials, complete individual and group assignments, and engage with the rest of your classmates and instructors; online from anywhere. Each online course will be nine weeks in length, with a two-week break between courses.

Residency
During the course of your one-year program, you will attend one, two-week on-campus residency. Here you’ll get to interact face-to-face with your instructors, cohort and team.

Within the GD in Disaster and Emergency Management, there are five key learning outcome domains:
-Critical Thinking
-Communication
-Research
-Knowledge

Laddering Options

Students who wish to continue their studies towards completion of the Master of Arts in Disaster and Emergency Management may do so through the laddering process.

Current students may apply to transfer to the MA program while still in the diploma program. Space may be limited, so the ability to transfer is not guaranteed, and in these cases, only the master’s degree will be awarded upon completion of the MA, not the diploma.

Graduates of the diploma program must formally apply to the MA program.
