Bachelor of Applied Science in Homeland Security Emergency Management
Pierce College is pleased to announce its new Bachelor of Applied Science in Homeland Security Emergency Management degree program beginning winter 2017 (January 2017). This leadership and management degree program is part of a guided career pathway designed to prepare students to become 21st century emergency management professionals. The HSEM program is taught primarily online to train adults to oversee all-hazard emergency planning and training programs, coordinate disaster planning, and coordinate response and recovery efforts.
Traditional career pathways into emergency management jobs have evolved, and an industry need for HSEM professionals with complex, cross-functional jobs requires new skill sets. There is a growing need in all sectors of the community for agile career professionals who understand the complex nature of emergency preparedness, disaster management and homeland security, including cyber security.
Recognition of the need for whole community involvement has led to the growth of professional homeland security and emergency management careers with a myriad of titles found in both the public and private sectors.
