It is now possible to get an online degree as a Master of Infrastructure Planning and Management. This podcast is an interview with Wendy Freitag, Program Director for the University of Washington’s program linked above. In this podcast we talk generally about online degrees in general, to include those in emergency management. How they compare school to school and with resident courses of study. A bit of history on higher education in emergency management is included along with more specifics on the University of Washington’s program. With all the current talk of a large infrastructure funding bill, this program might just be the ticket for your future. Note: I am on the advisory board for the degree program.
