Safety & Security Management Studies - English - Full-time

It’s hard to think of a recent news story that has not involved safety and security. Headlines talk of conflicts, crime, terrorism, racial violence and threats. SSMS specialists are at the helm in the control room in a crisis and at the frontline with organisations’ safety and security issues. This doesn’t mean we’re all aiming to work in intelligence. But you will hit the ground running, learning how to thrive under pressure and see another side to society.
