Hear from University of Maryland Global Campus public safety students who have applied the skills and knowledge they've gained from their criminal justice, emergency management, homeland security, investigative forensics, and legal studies coursework to their careers in public service.
Public safety degrees work very well for people who have been working in the field and need that academic credential.

I transferred 15 credits to UMGC based on my experience and training in the Army. It was a fairly easy process. My UMGC advisor showed me the paperwork I needed to do. I turned it in, and the next day, my transferred credits showed up online.
