EKU Graduates Share Their Experiences with the Occupational Safety Degree Programs

Students in the online Bachelor’s in Occupational Safety at EKU are able to learn about every aspect of a career in safety, from OSHA inspections, to training, to workers compensation and auditing. Additionally, students can speak to faculty and other class participants about how to directly apply these theories into practical settings at work. The EKU faculty brings many years of safety experience to the table, and the program incorporates directly applications of theories, using tactics such as incorporating videos of a construction safety and OSHA inspections on-campus for a new building into coursework for online students.

Read below to hear our graduates’ and professors’ thoughts on the EKU degree program:

“EKU is truly a community and a family. The faculty is very supportive, and they are the same people whether they are inside or outside the classroom.”
- Amanda Hall, EKU Graduate and Pipe Line Field Safety Professional for Marathon Oil

“The safety industry is so diverse, there’s no way to prepare graduates for a single job, so the main thing I learned with this degree is how to find the answers I need. This degree has given me the tools to find the answers I need on-the-job.”
- Adam Halla, Environmental Health & Safety Specialist for Aera Energy LLC and EKU Graduate

“The faculty is top-notch. They use their real-life experience in the field to really bring the teachings to life. Also, graduates of EKU come straight out of school and are landing some great jobs, and the best part is that the companies are coming to EKU to recruit students directly.”
- Chad Clark, EKU Graduate and Safety Associate for Georgia Pacific

“Our faculty members have blue-collar and white-collar experience, and most of us are still active on both fronts, which helps us to stay current with industry trends.”
- Ron Dotson

“The faculty truly makes this degree program stand out. They give a strong foundation and enhance the curriculum with their industry experiences, which makes our graduates untouchable.”
- Program Coordinator Michael Schumann
