Drury’s College of Continuing Professional Studies unveils new degree offerings for the fall of 2013
SPRINGFIELD, Mo., July 26, 2013 — Beginning in the fall of 2013, Drury students in the College of Continuing Professional Studies (CCPS) will have the opportunity to pursue degrees in emergency management and public administration.
“These two areas of study are applicable to many different professions. Whether a person desires a position in local government, with a non-profit, or furthering his or her career with their current employer, these degree offerings can give them tools necessary to reach their goals,” said Aaron Jones, dean of the College of Continuing Professional Studies.
The U.S. Department of Labor classifies emergency management as a “bright outlook occupation.” Emergency management experts teach the classes, and the curriculum was designed by working professionals with years of experience in the field. Students can choose from either a bachelor’s degree or an associate degree. The first two courses in the degree program, “Introduction to Emergency Management Principles” and “Practice and Hazard Identification,” will be offered online in the fall of 2013.
For students interested in a career in government or with a non-profit or non-governmental organization, Drury will begin bachelor’s and associate degree programs in public administration this fall. Coursework in this degree program addresses everything from grant writing and Constitutional law to economics and writing.
