IUPUI gets OK for public-safety master’s degree

The Indiana Commission for Higher Education has approved the state’s first master of science degree program in criminal
justice and public safety.

The program will begin next fall at IUPUI.

The new program’s director, Thomas
Stucky, says recent events such as the earthquake in Haiti and the Christmas Day bombing attempt stress the need for public
safety professionals who can combine tactical experience with theory, analysis and management.

Students will be
able to concentrate in a number of areas including terrorism, disaster preparedness, crisis management and community policy.
