Degrees for Public Safety Professionals
American Military University is dedicated to educating those who serve. We value our roots in the military and extend that same dedication to those who serve and protect our nation as public safety professionals in law enforcement, emergency response, fire services, homeland security, intelligence, and more.
The strength of our program relies on established partnerships with public safety organizations and agencies around the nation. These partnerships ensure our courses deliver relevant and current information to prepare graduates for leadership positions within public safety agencies.
Our faculty maintains both high academic excellence as well as first-hand experience as practitioners in their respective fields, providing students with real-world perspective.
AMU has designed its classrooms to accommodate the working adult, many of whom have unpredictable schedules. Our classes are 100% online and based on an asynchronous schedule, so students can complete coursework around their busy lives.
