Professional Master’s in Occupational Safety and Health (Online)

Take Your Career To The Next Level.

During the course of the two-year program, you will use real-world scenarios to better equip you to manage complex safety and health programs at your organization, including identifying risks, deploying action plans, and measuring and improving performance.

Our hybrid format (online and three campus visits) allows you to blend working face-to-face with industry experts and peers with the convenience of learning online so you can continue to pursue your degree while working full-time and keeping the safety of your team at the forefront.

The Professional Master’s in Occupational Safety and Health (Online) program is a Graduate Safety Practitioner (GSP) Qualified Academic Program (QAP) designation from the Board of Certified Safety Professionals. The QAP designation allows graduates to apply for the Graduate Safety Practitioner (GSP) designation with the BCSP. This designation eliminates the need to sit for the Associate Safety Professional (ASP) exam in pursuit of the Certified Safety Professional (CSP) designation.

With a Professional Master’s in Occupational Safety and Health (PMOSH), you will set yourself up for long-term success.
