The program in Policing, Public Safety, and Security is designed to provide students with a foundational understanding of the different components of the public safety systems in the United States and their role in protecting and serving the community. By fostering an understanding of the individual roles, responsibilities, and capabilities of emergency medical services, corrections, security, and policing, our students will be better equipped to create and manage valuable partnerships within the public safety arena in both emergency and non-emergency environments. Students will also receive a more focused education in their specific area of specialty. It is the intent of this program to inspire students to look at public safety as a whole and think outside of the traditional siloed missions of different organizations within the system.
This program is intended for students employed in positions associated with corrections, policing, emergency medical services, or security; or who seek employment in such areas. The Baccalaureate in Policing, Public Safety, and Security will be delivered in a blended format. Courses will be delivered in traditional, online, and hybrid formats.
