Master of Science in Occupational Safety and Health

This program is offered to OSH practitioners, individuals seeking for career advancement in their career. In UNIMAS, we understand that becoming a safety and health professional requires multidisciplinary training. Therefore, our program embedded a broad-based educational background combined with specialized knowledge in physical sciences (medicine, physics, chemistry and engineering) and social sciences (behaviour, motivation and communication) together with the principles and concepts of management. There are two modes offered which are full-time or part-time. This programme is most suited to those who wish to further their education either in campus or the comfort of their home as we offered both conventional and open and distance learning.
