Professional Master's in Occupational Safety and Health (Online)

Now accepting applications for Fall 2021


The Professional Master’s in Occupational Safety and Health (Online) program is designed to help safety and health professionals develop their skills and knowledge necessary to successfully define and manage complex safety and health programs while working full time.

The two-year program consists of 10 courses on fundamentals and standards of occupational safety and health, technologies, communication skills, and business aspects.

The curriculum is taught in a hybrid format that blends face-to-face instruction and 24/7 online learning. As a student you will be part of a cohort and will complete each course with the same community of peers.

You’ll be required to travel to Georgia Tech’s Atlanta campus three times throughout the six-semester program. Each three-day visit will give you the opportunity to form strong relationships with your peers and program faculty.

The program culminates with a 12-week team-based capstone course that will pull all aspects of the program together for a unified learning experience.

The Professional Master’s in Occupational Safety and Health (Online) program is a Graduate Safety Practitioner (GSP) Qualified Academic Program (QAP) designation from the Board of Certified Safety Professionals.
