Presentation Transcript

  1. Studies in Disaster Science and Management Louisiana State University

  2. Disaster Science and Management is an interdisciplinary program • Civil and Environmental Engineering • Department of Oceanography and Coastal Studies • Institute for Environmental Studies • School of Social Work • College of Arts and Sciences • Landscape Architecture • Department of Geography • Department of Economics

  3. Program Goals •  Provide a broad understanding of the nature and impact of disasters on the natural, built and human environments

  4.  Form a basis for establishing strategies to effectively plan for disasters, mitigate the adverse effects of disasters, respond to disasters, and recover from disasters.

  5. Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary StudiesCollege of Arts and Sciences • Concentration: Disaster Science and Management • Hours: 37 hours (19 hours of core courses, and 18 hours of technical electives). • Status: Program under review by the Board of Regents (expected in early Fall, 2001).

  6. Courses • Hazards and the Environment • Fundamentals of Emergency Management • Hazards Seminar

  7. Areas of Study • Disaster Science and Engineering • Planning and Mitigation • Social Dimensions

  8. Science and Engineering • Hurricane Engineering or Natural Hazards and the Built Environment (for Non-engineers) • Weather Analysis and Satellite Meteorology

  9. Planning and Mitigation • Building Sustainable Communities • Environmental Hazards Analysis • Regulation and Environmental Hazards • Environmental Economics

  10. Social Dimensions • Crisis Intervention • Social Dimensions of Disasters

  11. Elective Course Requirements • 18 Hours • Natural Hazards • Chemical and Biological Hazards • The Human Environment • The Community • Practicum / Research

  12. Natural Hazards • Applied Ecology • Environmental Remote Sensing • Physical Oceanography • Geographic Information Systems

  13. Chemical and Biological Hazards • Quantitative Risk Assessment • Environmental Toxicology • Environmental Pollution Transport Processes

  14. The Human Environment • Methods of Sociological Research • Human Ecology • Perspectives in Contemporary Social Welfare • Psychology of Adjustment • Counseling

  16. Minor Disaster Science and Management

  17. The Minor is open to LSU undergraduates • Coursework: 19 hours (7 hours of courses, and 12 hours of technical electives). • Currently available to LSU students • Although the Minor is generally available to students of any major at LSU. Students outside the College of Arts and Sciences are required to get permission from their Dean.
