Public Safety Management Partnership Program

What is public safety management?

The Public Safety Management major is designed to equip public safety officials with additional management and communication skills to address the needs of their urban constituents. It provides an in-depth study of community safety needs and problems, as well as analytical tools for addressing injustice for those living and working in urban settings. 

The Public Safety Management major is designed to:

  • Prepare both pre-career and active public safety personnel for leadership roles in public safety organizations.
  • Allow for in-depth study of community safety needs and introduce analytical tools for developing response strategies for use in emergency situations.
  • Promote understanding of policy tools to protect the safety and well-being of our communities.
