Public safety is a growing career opportunity, as efficient leaders are needed to manage and administer programs and agencies meeting the ever-increasing public safety needs of the U.S. An education in public safety prepares students to pursue careers in management and administration of public and private entities, in the fields of security, law enforcement, fire safety, homeland security, emergency medical management and much more.
“The demand for public safety degree programs continues to grow, and more and more schools are recognizing the need for quality undergraduate education to prepare tomorrow’s leaders,” says Ken Lyons, Co-Founder of Safe Sound Family. “We developed this list of the best public safety degrees as a resource for students who wish to pursue careers in the public safety field, so they can quickly find some of the best degree programs available.”
Schools that made the list offer public safety degree programs with a foundation in core leadership and management competencies. Undergraduate degree programs were also selected based on earned recognition from reputed ranking institutions, like U.S. News and World Report, and affiliations with leading industry organizations, like the Homeland Security Educational Consortium Association.
Top programs in public safety include undergraduate degrees in public safety administration offered through Florida Atlantic University, Keiser University and St. Petersburg College, which also offers the program in an online format for students residing in other locations. Grand Canyon University also offers an online Bachelor’s Degree in Public Safety and Emergency Management.
Other top programs in public safety include those offered by Cleveland State University, Eastern Michigan University, Eastern Kentucky University and Florida State University, among others.
“These undergraduate programs are ideal for professionals already serving in the public service and safety sector who want to improve their chances of advancing to leadership roles as well as students who plan to pursue graduate studies or legal education," says Lyons.
