The following contains a change received too late for inclusion in the official printed university catalog (also relevat for students with non-aviation undergraduate degrees who have aviation knowledge through experience). 

Master of Science in Aviation–Aviation Safety

The Master of Science in Aviation – Aviation Safety degree program is designed for adult working professionals in public, private and military aviation-related professions where advanced knowledge of aviation safety is necessary. Persons interested in aviation safety management, accident/incident investigation, technical aviation consulting and educational, regulatory or investigative positions in government or private organizations would find this program appropriate.

The degree is especially relevant for those who have earned baccalaureate degrees in aviation-related fields or those who have gained aviation foundational knowledge through experience and now require more specialized aviation safety knowledge. Individuals without current experience in aviation-related fields may be accepted into this program; however, a prerequisite (AVT 5000 Airspace Safety) may be required.

The goal of the program is to prepare individuals for advanced leadership positions in public, private and military aviation sectors with specific skills and competencies in aviation safety.

Curriculum

The Master of Science in Aviation – Aviation Safety is offered online as a nonthesis program, which requires successful completion of 30 credit hours including a capstone course. Two courses are offered each semester. Students should develop and adhere to an approved program plan of study.
