As world population continues to grow, so does the need to maintain safety and security in the face of increased dangers. Concerned citizens who seek to make an impact on our country’s future can be the first line of defense through critical professions in public safety, emergency response and disaster management.

Essential technical skills and personal acumen necessary to succeed in a domestic or international setting can be developed through a Public Safety and Security Program at Waubonsee.

Curriculum in these fast-paced courses is broad and deep, challenging students to rise above their limitations.

You’ll work with experts who bring robust teaching to classrooms, labs and field training—and you’ll find resources to put that knowledge to the test in various campus organizations before pursuing an advanced degree or a professional position. The programs also explore mental fitness and other characteristics of successful public servants.

Whatever career you strive for—officer, analyst, technician, administrator—you’ll have the right qualifications and education from your Waubonsee Public Safety and Service Program.
