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. You’ll have set class hours as well as homework and meetings outside of class hours, making this an intensive and rewarding time.

Learning Outcomes

Royal Roads University works with an outcomes-based learning model. Learning outcomes are clear, plain language descriptors of knowledge and performance tasks that students demonstrate in order to successfully complete a program.

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

Using learning outcomes helps to clarify a program’s focus, helps students connect their program to their workplace, provides a focus for assessment/evaluation, and helps employers understand the benefits of the program.

Who It’s For

This degree is designed for existing and aspiring disaster management and emergency services professionals. Many students come from the fields of government, emergency management, healthcare, education, NGOs, military, police, fire and community planning.

Applicants who do not have the formal academic education to qualify for admission may be assessed on the basis of both their formal education and their informal learning, in accordance with the Flexible Admission Policy. Applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Upon satisfactory completion of the courses and related assignments, students will be granted a Graduate Diploma in Disaster & Emergency Management.

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.

Flexible Admission

Normally 10 years of work experience, with a minimum of two years of relevant professional experience in a leadership or management position, or an equivalent combination of education and experience. All flexible admission applicants will normally be required to take "Academic Writing and Critical Thinking" and obtain a minimum B+ (77%).

Completion Options

Thesis Track
Students taking the thesis track will be required to take a second research course during their second residency.

Course-Based Track
Students taking the course-based track will be able to continue their studies online during the second year, choosing from a suite of electives designed to appeal to students in all three Humanitarian Studies’ graduate programs.

Course-Based Track with Internship
Within the course-based track, students may choose to take a 6-credit internship. Students who choose an internship will gain field experience. This experiential learning will help students apply their theoretical knowledge by demonstrating their ability in a real-world setting, and documenting their experiences.
