It’s hard to think of a recent news story that has not involved safety and security. Headlines talk of conflicts, crime, terrorism, racial violence and threats. Safety and Security Management Studies at The Hague University of Applied Sciences specialists are at the helm in the control room in a crisis and at the frontline with organisations’ safety and security issues.
This doesn’t mean we’re all aiming to work in intelligence. But you will hit the ground running, learning how to thrive under pressure and see another side to society.
Your chances of employment in safety and security management will be high after our pioneering programme. You’ll be able to tap into a contacts list of 40 big, internationally oriented organisations. NATO, Europol, Tesla, Eurocontrol, OPCW, Dutch Military branches and companies like Friesland Campina, Center Parcs, and G4S already benefit from our graduates’ expertise. You’ll have a feel for this new, exciting world from all the real life case studies in the programme.
As an SSMS graduate you’ll be highly employable in a range of exciting positions in various sectors, be it commercial, military or international government. Whatever career path you choose, it will be likely that you’ll be on the frontline dealing with people’s lives. In any case, you’ll be well qualified to identify risk situations and recommend, implement and evaluate feasible safety and security interventions. You could become a safety and security expert in the field of urban development and management, conflict mediation, or climb the career ladder at a police and security organisation, or within an international airport or insurance company. The opportunities are endless.
