As such, we have a dedicated cadre of faculty with specific knowledge in the area of emergency management. Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the field, students learn from faculty from across York, with expertise in a wide range of areas including environmental risks and management, natural hazards, public health, humanitarian law, public safety and security, crisis management, war and complex emergencies.

All faculty members are active participants in a variety of organizations contributing to the field of Disaster & Emergency Management, and, in many cases, are renowned published scholars.
