Our online graduate program offers students a unique opportunity to develop expertise across the three interrelated topics of transportation safety, security, and emergency management. Safety management protects from harm caused by non-intentional hazards, security management protects from intentional human behaviors, and emergency management prepares organizations for effective organizational response in the face of emergencies.
While safety, security, and emergency management are each independently critical to protecting human life, property, and the environment, transportation professionals are much more successful at managing any one of these areas when knowledgeable about all three.
The TSSEM program prepares students for careers across the transportation industry. Public-sector transportation organizations are required by law to have staff working on both safety and emergency management, and in recent years new federal mandates require public transit agencies to prioritize safety management. Students who complete our TSSEM studies would be well prepared for such positions as Chief Safety Officer of a public transit operator and Emergency Manager or Security Manager for a public transit or tranpsportaion agency.
