Disaster and tragedy can strike without warning. In these times of trouble, leaders and heroes step forward to bring order to the chaos. Goodwin College educates such professionals — those who run towards the danger, who put the lives of others ahead of their own. By enrolling in our Public Safety and Security program, you will be prepared to make a life-altering difference during times of need.

Our bachelor’s degree program emphasizes the development of professional skills and knowledge of Public Safety, which include grant writing, risk assessment, research methodology, policy analysis, and safety and security planning. You will learn and apply the skills associated with evidence-based decision making. Our public safety degree program is interdisciplinary allowing you to advance through a traditional bachelor’s degree program following either a Criminal Justice or Homeland Security Track. Criminal Justice courses emphasize criminal investigation, criminal procedure, and the development of the criminal justice system. Homeland Security courses emphasize emergency planning, the National Incident Management System, and personal and physical security.

Envision yourself working in a career where you will protect people from danger and keep them out of harm’s way.
