M.S. in Occupational Safety Management

The Master of Science in Occupational Safety Management (MSOSM) provides the theoretical foundation, research, and application skills required to effectively anticipate, recognize, evaluate, prevent, and control workplace safety, health, and environmental hazards and to manage comprehensive occupational safety and health programs.  One of the unique features is that it is offered on the Daytona Campus where students will have the opportunity to observe maintenance and other, related aviation facilities providing support for a large fleet of aircraft.  These experiences will provide a perspective transferable to aviation and other industries.  The program and courses are evaluated both internally by peers and externally by subject matter experts and modified regularly to ensure students are engaged with current topics to meet the demands of industry.  Applicants should have a strong academic record with a CGPA of approximately 3.0 or higher.  No admissions examination is required.

The degree is a Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) Qualified Academic Program (QAP). Graduates of a QAP are eligible to apply for the Graduate Safety Practitioner® (GSP®), a BCSP-approved credential necessary to apply for the Certified Safety Professional® (CSP®). It is only available to SH&E graduates from degree programs which meet BCSP QAP standards.
