Bachelor of Science in Unified Public Safety Administration

The current Occupational Outlook Handbook clearly demonstrates the need for not only more UPSA professionals, but for better-prepared applicants. NSU can help you prepare for entry into federal, state, and local agencies.

The very dangerous, continually increasing and evolving threats to homeland security and cybercrime have mandated a new breed of public safety professional. The now very vocal, urgent demand is for specialized interpersonal and analytical skills, and contemporary, state-of-the-art perspectives on the scientific, social, and informational concentrations involved in efficient and effective intelligence gathering, policing, fire services and emergency management, proactive planning, security services, and other public safety arenas. The UPSA Degree provides the skills necessary to meet the demands of the future.

The UPSA degree has six concentrations:

  • Law Enforcement Administration (256A)
  • Fire and Emergency Medical Service Administration (256B)
  • Emergency Management Administration (256D)
  • Public Facilities Management (256D)
  • Nuclear Surety Management (256E)
