The Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mining Management and Safety is designed for those who seek management careers in the fast-growing coal industry. Designed for those in mining who are progressing toward middle and upper management, as well as for entry-level positions, this degree provides a general overview of coal and coal mining, from exploration to combustion.
The coal curriculum includes such topics as coal, its storied history; coal geology; the location and quality of coal deposits; land and mineral acquisition; coal mining methods; coal preparation; quality control; marketing and sales; the transportation of coal; coal mining safety; environmental issues, and clean coal technologies.
All coursework for this program is offered 100% online. At the end of the program there are two internship requirements.
It is anticipated that holders of this degree will be qualified for numerous jobs within the coal industry, among which are land and mineral acquisition, office management, personnel management, quality control, bid preparation, transportation, and sales. With sufficient parallel experience in a mine, the degree will also prepare students for a managerial career in coal mining operations.
Ancillary to the coal industry, degree holders would also be qualified for positions in banking and finance, transportation, electric utilities, with industrial coal users, with companies that own and/or control vast mineral reserves, environmental regulation agencies, state and federal government agencies that regulate coal mining, and with numerous other employers, both public and private.
