Emergency Management

WAFE Department | AAS - Associate of Applied Science Degree | 2 years

The Emergency Management degree at CCC teaches students how to plan for and respond to emergencies and/or disasters. Careers include working for FEMA, Public Safety and more.

Clackamas Community College has a unique partnership with FEMA and several states around the country, which allows students to complete their degree primarily online and at their own pace. A majority of our courses are completed through the FEMA Independent Study program and then converted into credits at CCC. The remainder of the degree requirements are satisfied using a combination of online, partner state trainings and college level courses. This degree is intended for residents of our partnership states, non-partner residents will have to travel out of state to complete a portion of their credits for degree completion.
