Public safety schools in Minnesota offer certificates and degrees in a variety of programs to help prepare students to become safety specialists. While there are a wide range of employment opportunities as a public safety specialist, the common goal behind the program is to provide safety to the public. Certificate programs typically take one year to complete while associate’s degrees in public safety take two years to finish. Courses taken for public safety students include a heavy load in mathematics, science, biology, chemistry and health sciences, English and safety.
