“The instructors were fantastic guides into an academic experience that went beyond my expectations.”
Raymond G Monteith
MA in Disaster and Emergency Management
“I had high expectations for the Master of Arts in Disaster and Emergency Management (MADEM) program at Royal Roads University: I expected to be challenged and stretched beyond what was familiar to me; to learn more than what I could find in a textbook or journal article; to leave RRU with new knowledge and experiences that would elevate me; and I expected that placing an MA after my signature would make a difference to me personally and professionally.
My actual experience in the program went beyond my expectations. I met and worked with dedicated and committed students in several cohorts; I met a truly amazing team of educators, each adding immeasurably to the quality and value of my experience at RRU; I learnt about my abilities and capacity for learning and adapting to change; and I know, without a doubt, that those two letters after my signature have made a significant difference to my career. Suffice to say, my experience at RRU exceeded any and all of my expectations.
I now have friendships, colleagues, knowledge, experiences, a sense of accomplishment, an advanced academic credential, and a career position that I would not have had outside of the MADEM program.”
