The Bachelor of Science degree in Safety Sciences is currently accredited by the Applied Sciences Accreditation Commission of ABET,
http://www.abet.org. This program currently has 50 students, the majority of which will graduate by the end of the summer 2015 semester. The BS in Safety Sciences is being phased out and replaced with a BS degree in Safety, Health, and Environmental (SHE) Applied Sciences. The SHE Applied Sciences program is seeking initial accreditation with the Applied Sciences Accreditation Commission of ABET for the Fall 2015/16 cycle. This program currently has 250 students and will graduate approximately 70 students per year, starting with the spring 2015 semester. These two programs share the same
educational objectives and similar student outcomes.

Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) standards as a Qualified Academic Program (QAP). As a QAP, graduates of the BS degree are awarded the Graduate Safety Practitioner designation from the BCSP. Graduates with this designation receive a waiver of the Safety Fundamentals Examination and the recognition they are proceeding toward the CSP safety certification.
The Safety Sciences Department
advisory board is made up of safety, health, and environmental professionals from academia and a variety of manufacturing sectors. The committee meets twice yearly to review the program mission and outcomes, curriculum, and facilities/equipment and recommend program improvements—a biannual QC evaluation of the department.
