Minor in Public Safety Administration
Students may seek either an academic major or minor in public safety administration.
The public safety administration minor complements the skills the student gains in his or her major discipline by providing a background in the field. The minor exposes students to the principles of strategic planning, risk management, public policy, and ethics as related to public safety administration.
Requirements for the Minor
A minor in public safety administration requires the completion of 15 credits of coursework in public safety administration. All PSAD courses apply. Students should take PSAD 302 as their first course in the minor (if they have not already applied the course toward other degree requirements).
Courses already applied toward other degree requirements (e.g., major or general education) may not be applied toward the minor. At least 9 credits must be earned in upper-level courses (numbered 300 or above). Prerequisites apply for all courses.
