      Hello- You would need to complete a bachelor’s degree in order to be considered for admissions into the master’s program. On the website you can find out more about the different bachelor’s degrees EKU offers.

    I am in Loss Prevention for a Food Service Company and would like to take courses in safety and security that could be relevant to the S & S section of Human Resources. I have not been in school since 1975 and graduated with a Bacherlors Degree in Asian History, GPA 3.63 at Chaminade College of Honolulu, now Chaminade University of Honolulu. I am also 65, retired military and a disabled veteran. I have been retired since 1992 so do not currently know if I have education benefits available under the GI Bill but would still like to see what may ne out there for me.

    I currently have one M.A. in Education and in my last two classes of a M.S. in School Business Leadership along with my Supervisor of Special Education and Principal Certifications k-12 in Pennsylvania. I am interested in the School Safety certificate program. Are MAT, GRE, GMAT required. The information on the websites certificates/masters programs are conflicting on what is needed for entrance into the program. I have 12 + years in emergency services through local volunteer fire departments in Pa and hold many state and county certifications for the fire service please advise.

    I’m interested in the school safety certificate and currently hold a MS in Strategic Leadership from an accredited four-year institution. I’m interested in the certificate to benefit my work in a community college. Do you need my transcripts from the MS-degree granting institution or from my BA-degree granting institution?
