EMH 460 - Internship


3 Credits

Students are strongly encouraged to take part in an internship after completing at least 60 credits of the requirements of the EMH program. As much as possible, experiential learning methods will be employed throughout the program to give students a real-world view of emergency management and homeland security. An internship at an emergency management or homeland security related agency or organization will provide the student with first-hand experience in these dynamic fields. An internship is an approved on-the-job work experience where knowledge of emergency management and homeland security obtained from classroom theory is integrated with practical work experiences. Internships provide students with knowledge of career opportunities; increase the likelihood of employment; help students gain an understanding of the vital role emergency management and homeland security plays in government, private, and non-profit agencies; and prepare students for a successful career in these exciting and challenging fields.
Prerequisites: EMH 101 .
