This paper surveys a number of major colleges and universities to categorize the types of courses given in the general fields of risk and safety. While this survey is in no way complete, it does provide a basis by which to conduct a more extensive survey of such courses. The findings suggest that degreed programs--from Associate level through Doctoral--in risk and safety are offered, at least to some extent, in most of the major colleges and universities surveyed. The general categories of courses range from environmental health, industrial safety, risk insurance, and general risk to risk management. Selected course numbers and titles are also listed. 24 pp.
