Fall 2017 Job Fair

Job Fair


Stratton Building


Justice & Safety Students

We at the Eastern Kentucky University College of Justice & Safety are committed to helping  students find success in their chosen career fields.  In addition to preparing students academically, we provide opportunities for them to network with prospective employers by hosting biannual career fairs. 

Many of the recruiters who attend the College’s career fairs return to campus year after year.  Students who regularly attend the fairs are able to give a face to their résumés because of the relationships they develop with these recruiters.  Building a successful career is not just about what you know, but it is also about who you know.  Career fairs are an excellent way for students to expand their professional networks and bring them one step closer to achieving their goals.


The College of Justice & Safety houses the School of Justice Studies and the School of Safety, Security & Emergency Management.  Justice Studies includes majors in Criminal Justice, Police Studies, and Social Justice Studies.  Safety, Security & Emergency Management includes majors in Emergency Medical Care; Fire Protection & Safety Engineering Technology; Fire, Arson & Explosion Investigation; Fire Protection Administration; Occupational Safety; and Homeland Security.  Graduate programs include Criminal Justice, Justice Policy & Leadership (formerly Adult, Juvenile & Community Corrections Leadership), and Safety, Security & Emergency Management. 

The college also offers online degrees in Corrections & Juvenile Justice Studies at the baccalaureate level; Police Studies at the associate and baccalaureate levels; Fire Protection Administration; Fire Protection & Safety Engineering Technology; Fire, Arson & Explosion Investigation;  Homeland Security; and Occupational Safety at the baccalaureate level; and Justice Policy & Leadership (formerly Adult, Juvenile & Community Leadership), and Safety, Security & Emergency Management at the master’s levels.
