Public safety professionals provide essential services that protect the well-being and survival of our citizens. Fanshawe's School of Public Safety understands the skill, knowledge and commitment required for service in public safety; we offer a breadth of academic programs that provide students the tools and applied learning experiences needed to pursue a wide range of demanding careers.

Our faculty members - many of whom still work in their respective disciplines - are passionate leaders in their fields. They understand career requirements and offer real-work perspectives to prepare graduates for employment in the competitive market.

We also offer flexible learning options. Many of our certificate and graduate certificates are available in flexible formats that work with students' diverse schedules such as full-time, part-time, accelerated, weekend college and online delivery options.
