Now is a great time to enroll in a Christ-focused, accredited, online Disaster and Emergency Management bachelor’s degree program. With the onset of irregular weather patterns, super storms and other natural disasters, Disaster and Emergency Management is an exciting and rewarding professional field experiencing strong job growth.

The skills and knowledge obtained from a Disaster and Emergency Management degree can be applied to careers in law enforcement and emergency response; federal, state and local preparedness and response agencies; corporate risk management and response; and nonprofit relief organizations. Those who work with, or hope to seek a career with, Christian emergency response organizations will find Crown’s program particularly beneficial.


Crown’s Christian online Disaster and Emergency Management degree addresses the management principles, public policies and best practices that are essential for any emergency management professional, but it also adds the faith components that often go hand-in-hand with this critically important work. Tuition is priced competitively, lower than similar accredited institutions. In fact, 98 percent of those enrolled at Crown receive student loans, scholarships or financial aid.

“Crown’s B.S. degree in Disaster and Emergency Management uniquely positions graduates to work within government, nonprofit and for-profit organizations to effectively and professionally respond to crises. Our graduates will apply their leadership and management expertise using strategic planning and decision-making models from a Christian perspective, bringing ethics and cultural sensitivity to the practice of emergency and crisis management.” – Darin Mather, PhD, Program Chair, Social Sciences
