The new program is offered in partnership with the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security, which is housed on the university's campus and produces research on sport safety and security risks and threats at sporting events.

Specialized classes in the program will cover topics like threat and risk assessment of sporting events, sport event emergency response planning, and sports security management.

There will be intakes in the spring, summer, and fall.
