American University in the Emirates
Bachelor of Arts in Security and Strategic Studies – Crisis Management Communication
As part of the BA in Security and Strategic Studies, the Crisis Management Communication track puts emphasis on knowledge of the media environment, especially in the Middle East (actors, cultural backdrop, etc.) and their role during crises (from natural disaster to warfare). The cooperation between the actors involved in a crisis is an essential aspect of the crisis management. How and under which conditions can they communicate, how they establish the priorities, and so on. The psychological dimension of the crisis, in terms of decision-making or controlling the erratic reactions of the populations or victims are analyzed.
