A dynamic, hands-on curriculum

Core courses cover dynamic subjects such as safety science, safety management, and industrial hygiene, including hands-on experience in lab facilities with equipment to test noise levels, air quality, and other critical indicators. You'll also study subject areas such as psychology, life sciences, and communication. A required internship and voluntary participation in professional safety and health protection organizations (student chapters of Eta Sigma Gamma and the American Society of Safety Professionals) will provide you with real-world career preparation.


With a degree in safety, you will be prepared for a wide range of careers, including safety manager, safety director, insurance loss control consultant, risk manager, and others related to occupational safety and health. Coaches in our Office of Career Services will work with you to create a plan tailored to your interests.
