The Disaster Science and Emergency Management program at LSUA is young, but growing.

LSUA’s online Disaster Science and Emergency Management program has been rated by BestColleges.com as one of the best programs in the country for 2019. 

The methodology in the ranking is based on statistical data and applied principles including academic quality, affordability, and online competency. 

“This is quite an accomplishment. Our DESM program prepares students to understand how disasters happen and to take leading roles in managing emergencies for best outcomes, and we’re proud to be recognized for our quality,” says Dr. Kerry Ordes, LSUA professor. 

Emergency management is a field dedicated to protecting life and property in the event of a natural or man-made catastrophe. LSUA first launched its Bachelor of General Studies with a concentration in Disaster Science and Emergency Management a few years ago.
