Aviation Safety & Security @USC
For over half a century the USC program has served as the gold standard of aviation safety management education, developing a reputation for excellence that is recognized nationally and internationally in the aviation community. Our program was established at USC in 1952 as the first Aviation Safety program at a major research university. We offer 20 courses to nearly 1000 students each year in a personal and hands-on format. Our instructors are skilled educators with extensive industry experience, and courses are taught in small classes to facilitate classroom interaction. Students gain the knowledge to establish safety programs, investigate aircraft accidents, become expert witnesses, and deal with human factor issues.
