MA in Disaster and Emergency Management
“I chose the Master of Arts in Disaster and Emergency Management at Royal Roads University because I wanted a program that would enable me to gain the essential knowledge and skills to help others. I was drawn to the program, in part, because of the way the courses were delivered. I had a fulltime job, and Royal Roads University was the only institution offering a blended learning format that would allow me to complete a graduate degree while I remained employed.
Today, this education has proven to be invaluable in my current strategic planning role. As we embrace challenges for humanitarian aid and/or disaster relief, I now have the capacity to bring a wealth of theory and academic research to the decision making process. In the future, as the world becomes more unstable and the instances of natural disasters increase, this education, combined with the peer network I have developed from my cohort, will be invaluable.”
