Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

If you are contemplating the master program, you may wish to start with the corresponding graduate diploma program. You will take SAFE600 and SAFE601 as well as the two courses related to your diploma. These four courses are part of the Master of Public Safety program. If you wish to continue to the master program, you may have these courses transferred into that program upon admission. Four additional courses are required to complete the Master of Public Safety and upon graduation, the diploma will be forfeited.
Additional diplomas may also be taken after the initial one or after the master’s by taking the two discipline specific courses.
