Risk Management Minor

The Risk Management Minor represents an interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary approach that combines risk management courses across many of the disciplines in the College of Arts and Sciences.  This unique blend of diverse risk management related courses allows students to obtain highly in-demand skills that help organizations manage crisis.  Students who obtain this minor will be able to demonstrate that they have the skills needed to plan and positively respond to future disasters.  A risk management minor combined with the student’s major will provide graduates with a key differentiator and a more diverse range of career opportunities.

Students desiring to earn a minor in Risk Management will need to complete three RM program common requirement courses and two RM specialization elective courses.  These courses teach students how to identify risks, determine how risks get mitigated and the overall management of risks.
