Online Fire Science Degrees & Certificates

Service, leadership, and relevance—these values guide the University’s online Degrees in Fire Science and its online community of students, many who are current fire science and emergency management professionals. In the world of fire and emergency operations, conditions change quickly as does the knowledge needed to lead the response. The online Fire Science program teaches students the latest industry principles, theory, and best practices. Students learn tactical operations, fire safety, firefighting leadership and management, and community fire outreach and response techniques.

The University classes are conducted entirely online. Whether taking courses at a fire station, while deployed in service, at an office, or while learning from home, students have the flexibility to fit career-relevant education into their busy lives and as they continue developing their existing careers. The Associate and Bachelor of Science in Fire Science Management offer students an opportunity to study critical components of fire science, management, fire safety, leadership, and crisis management. The University's program meets the academic requirements of the United States Fire Administration's Executive Fire Officer Program. Additionally, our professors are industry experts who combine relevant theory with real-world experience. Many are frontline leaders in firefighting, fire service management, urban search and rescue, emergency medical services, hazardous materials operations, incident command, emergency and disaster management, and hazard identification and risk reduction.
