Graduate Certificate in Sport Security

SoPA’s 100% online certificate program in Sport Security certificate program is designed for individuals either currently in or wanting to gain employment in sport security (teams, stadiums, tournaments) or events (parades, festivals). It covers the basics of emergency management (preparing, responding, recovering from either a human-created or natural disaster), physical security (cameras, fences, locks, and so forth, in and around a stadium or event facility), the major threats faced by sporting and various events (domestic and international terrorism), and specific sport and event security management procedures. The four courses in this “stackable” certificate may be applied toward several master’s degree programs; the Master of Professional Studies in Security Management, Master of Professional Studies in Emergency Management, and the Master of Professional Studies in Sport Studies.
