Abstract
A four year program in mine health and safety was established at Indiana University of Pennsylvania as a part of the already established Bachelor of Science Degree Program in safety management. Fifteen students were enrolled in the program during the first year of operation, with funds from the initial grant covering salaries of faculty and secretarial services, equipment, consultant fees, faculty travel, and trainee expenses. Feedback from graduates and industry have enabled improvements to be made in the initial program. A total of 80 individuals were majoring in this field in 1980. There were also ten part time students working in the mining industry while obtaining the degree. Each of the students spends a considerable amount of time at mining locations during a semester. Only 60 percent of the graduates were currently employed in this field, due primarily to depressed conditions in the mining industry.
