Indiana Tech Adds B.S. in Emergency Response Management

June 24, 2015

Indiana Tech will begin offering a Bachelor of Science in emergency response management when its College of Professional Studies courses resume on Sunday, July 26. This particular CPS degree program is being offered entirely online.

A degree in emergency response management will provide students with the knowledge and skills needed in emergency planning, prevention, mitigation, response and recovery. These skills are in demand by a wide range of employers, including:

  • State and federal homeland security agencies
  • Local and state law enforcement and fire departments
  • Local, state and federal emergency management agencies
  • Corporations seeking to protect people and facilities
  • Non-profit emergency planning and response organizations
  • The U.S. military

“In an unpredictable world, you need to have skilled professionals that are not only proficient at responding to emergent situations, but have the foresight to help prevent crises from happening,” said Dr. Jeffrey Zimmerman, dean of Indiana Tech’s College of Business. “Our emergency response management program will equip students with a skill set that will help them accomplish both.”

Indiana Tech’s College of Professional Studies gives busy, working adults a convenient way to complete their undergraduate and graduate degrees. A CPS academic year is comprised of nine sessions and five- and six-week courses. This format gives students easy, yearlong access into the program, makes rapid progress achievable and allows them to build momentum toward the completion of their degree. Our CPS program offers career-focused degrees that are in high demand and will give students an advantage when they are ready to take that next step in their career.
