The need for highly trained campus public safety leaders at our nation’s 7,200+ colleges and universities has never been greater. The increased threat of international and domestic terrorism, regulatory compliance requirements, and important concerns such as substance abuse and sexual/relationship violence demand that campus public safety professionals demonstrate a high degree of expertise, insight, and leadership.

New England College’s Campus Public Safety Administration concentration is the only concentration of its kind in the United States.

Ideal for anyone who currently works or wishes to work in campus public safety administration, this track is delivered 100% online. One-third of the courses are specifically related to campus public safety administration, and two-thirds have a broader higher education administration focus.
