Format and Schedule

The Professional Master’s in Occupational Safety and Health (PMOSH) program is offered in the hybrid format; which means, you will receive most of the two-year education online via pre-recorded lectures and real-time web-conferencing sessions. You will gather three times in Atlanta for weeklong meetings throughout the two years. These campus visits will enable you to develop stronger relationships with peers and faculty. 

Additionally, faculty support is available during virtual office hours. 

Professional Master's in Occupational Safety and Health Cohort Program 

A new group of students begin the PMOSH program each fall. Called a cohort, these classmates take each master’s course together (see curriculum chart). They also collaborate on various projects and assignments. In addition to becoming a tight-knit group, which will benefit you in many ways, this team approach is a great way to increase your leadership and communication skills. 

Course Sequence 

The PMOSH program includes 10 leadership courses. To complete them within two years, you will register for two eight-week courses per semester (one course at a time) for four semesters. Additionally, you’ll take one course for two consecutive summers. Finally, the program culminates with the capstone course that takes place in the last summer semester, which is twelve weeks. 

Using this approach, you will spend a total of three weeks on campus over a two-year period. Time spent on campus will occur in fall of year 1 (mid-August), fall of year 2 (October), and summer of year 2 (early August).
