Occupational Safety and Health

The Occupational Safety and Health curriculum at Grayson College is designed to transfer to four-year institutions. Students may enroll in the OSH and core curriculum courses taught by Grayson College, and then are expected to transfer to a bachelor’s degree program. To make the most of your time at GC, students should be advised by the university/college of their choice prior to enrolling in GC courses.

Most OSH and core curriculum courses are taught online by Grayson College, and upper level courses in OSH are available on GC’s South Campus, taught by Southeastern Oklahoma State University professors. The OSH lab is in the new South Campus Technical Center in Van Alstyne.
