Although the Centre for Community Disaster Research is not a degree-granting academic unit at Mount Royal University, we facilitate, support and benefit from a number of courses offered throughout the university. This support includes working with course instructors to host guest speakers, lectures, and panels that connect to course material, offering internships and practicums, and supporting research projects related to disasters where students can work as Research Assistants or in various other capacities that dove-tail with the lessons learned in the classroom.  

Mount Royal has a diverse offering of courses on disasters, crises and catastrophes depending on your program. Here are some sample courses the CCDR has supported:

  • Crisis Intervention Strategies
  • Emergency Management and Disaster Recovery Extension Certificate
  • Emergency Nursing: Care of the Acutely Ill and Injured — Part A
  • Emergency Nursing: Care of the Acutely Ill and Injured — Part B
