Environmental Hazard Management Certificate

Environmental Hazard Management (EHM) is an interdisciplinary program that provides students with an understanding of the interrelationship between the built environment and extreme events in the natural environment. The EHM Program is open to students from any graduate degree program at Texas A&M University. 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.
