Return to College of Technology Return to: College of Technology

The Organizational Leadership and Supervision Bachelor of Science Degree offers an area of concentration in Environmental Health and Safety (EHS). EHS is a profession that involves the prevention of incidents/accidents, illnesses, fires, explosions, and other events which harm people, property, and the environment.

EHS professionals are an important component of most industries, including: communication, consulting, construction, government, healthcare, insurance, manufacturing, transportation, petroleum, and utilities.

Many of our graduates pursue careers as safety coordinators, safety supervisors, safety instructors/trainers, loss control specialists, and EHS specialists once they have finished their degrees.

The Organizational Leadership and Supervision Bachelor of Science program is accredited by the Applied Science Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. This ensures that the program is independently reviewed and meets the quality expectation for that profession.
