Breaking the Disaster Cycle: Future Directions in Natural Hazard Mitigation
This is a complete course syllabus, including instructor guides and powerpoint presentations. It comes from the FEMA Emergency Management Higher Education Project. This graduate seminar stresses the analysis of hazard mitigation policy and practice, based on independent thought and judgement by the students. The seminar setting is designed to encourage student research; students prepare and present two shorter papers on selected aspects of federal and state mitigation policy during the term, as well as a longer term paper at the conclusion of the course.
