School Safety, Security, and Emergency Management Specialization

Students who feel safe and secure at school are better able to learn by engaging the curriculum, their teachers, and their peers. Grow your educational knowledge and skills related to teaching, learning, and student support by earning a Master of Education with a specialization in School Safety, Security, and Emergency Management.

Throughout the master’s in school safety, security, and emergency management program, you will learn about diverse topics such as technologies to manage safety, security, and emergencies; threat assessments of people and facilities; restorative justice and other alternatives to student discipline; and how to contribute, implement, and improve school safety plans through a practitioner’s perspective.

By the end of the program, you will have explored the similarities and differences among safety, security, and emergency management within K-12 school settings, learned about technologies that address safety, security, and emergency management in K-12 educational contexts, and investigated the balance of social order and social justice within K-12 educational contexts. Finally, you will have critiqued K-12 school safety plans for principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice.

You will demonstrate your proficiency through a capstone project in the final course.
