Maren Disney

Security and Resilience Studies, Graduate Certificate


Maren Disney is no stranger to formal education and intends to keep learning as much as she can. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in English and Writing from Central Washington University, and her master’s degree in Rhetoric and Composition & Technical Communication from Eastern Washington University, she is currently working in Marketing and Technical Communications at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Since Maren often works with professionals who specialize in resilience and emergency management, she knew it would be useful to have a broader knowledge of the field to help with her writing on the subject. That led her to pursuing Northeastern’s unique graduate certificate in Security and Resilience Studies.

Maren’s Path

“The certificate in particular provides you with the right level of exposure to topics that might be outside of your general field, so that you can learn and engage and produce something, while not necessarily committing to a full master’s degree.”
