Drury Announces New Masters Program in Public Service

Drury University announced this fall they will launch a new masters program aimed at those who want to advance their careers in public service.

The Master in Public Service and Safety Leadership will focus on developing leadership skills necessary to work in all aspects of public safety, operations, management, and strategic practices.

“We are seeing now, more than ever, the need for leaders in emergency management to have an integrated approach to public service and safety rather than operating in individual silos,” Dr. Lori Slater, Director Drury Leadership Collaborative, said in a statement. “This degree program was carefully crafted to ensure individuals the diverse knowledge and skills necessary to accomplish this.”

The program also features:

  • Credit for qualifying professional development courses (up to six credit hours)
  • Up to nine credit hours of transfer credit for military education/training
  • No GRE required to apply and no thesis required to graduate
  • Concurrent Credit options with the Emergency Management bachelor’s degree

There is a $500 scholarship opportunity available for up to 15 new students admitted to the program before July 15. Interested potential students should contact Drury University for more information.
