Courses in the EHM Certificate program are taught by faculty fellows of HRRC in the colleges of Architecture, Engineering, Geosciences, and Liberal Arts. The core courses provide a basic understanding of the entire range of issues related to environmental hazards. Specifically, these courses address basic theory, empirical research, and practical application related to both natural and technological hazards. The courses also address the implications of disaster research for policy formulation and implementation at the household, organizational, community, regional, state, federal, and international levels.
