Tactical Emergency Services with Vulnerable Populations Major

The Bachelor of Applied Sciences degree in Tactical Emergency Services with Vulnerable Populations is an interdisciplinary program offered jointly by the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, College of Humanities, Arts and Sciences, and College of Education. This program is administered through the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences under the jurisdiction and general supervision of the College Dean, with a designated program director.

The Bachelor of Applied Sciences degree in Tactical Emergency Services with Vulnerable Populations is designed for practitioners of tactical emergency services who are interested in earning a Bachelor of Applied Sciences with specialization in diverse and vulnerable populations in their technical fields. Admission to the major is limited to students with an AAS degree in one or more of the following tactical operator fields: Fire Sciences, Emergency Medical Services, Emergency Management, Law Enforcement, Homeland Security, Military Sciences, and related degrees.

This major requires 30 credit hours, which includes 19 hours of required core courses; 8 hours of major electives; and 3 credit  hours of a final field practicum with a culminating project serving vulnerable populations.

All UNI courses will be provided via distance education and/or online, in order to target place-bound working adults around the state and nation. Students can be full-time or part-time.
