    Default Back to school

    Im trying to see if anyone has received an associates degree from an online accredited college for Fire Science. The reason im looking for the online selection is because the local community colleges where I live don't offer the program. Can anyone provide any information on the pro's and con's about same. If so what are some of the top choices. Thanks

    Online courses are the best option for me. I finished my AS, Bachelors and am now working on a Masters. I have completed 23 of 25 classes online in the last four years. I just counln't see taking math or english 100 (freshman compostion) online.

    Try Alan Han**** College in California for your AS degree in Fire Science....

    There are several Community Colleges in NC that offer Online associates degree in Fire Protection Technology. To name a few Fayetteville Tech., Coastal Carolina, Guilford Tech., Forsyth Tech., and I believe Central Piedmont. If you ar NC resident the tuition is cheap! There are two Universities that offer Bachelor's degree: Fayetteville State University and UNC-Charlotte.
