    Question masters degree in so. cal.

    Im looking to get into a masters program in the next 18 months somewhere in the so. cal. area. This could mean san diego or LA or even Santa Barbera. Ill already have an A.S. in fire and emergency technology, A.A. in history, and B.S. in fire administration and technology.

    My question is what do you guys think of getting a masters in Homeland Security from sdsu? Would it be beneficial? Would a masters in public administration from csudh or masters in fire tech from csula be better?

    I want to be a firefighter, and Id like to just get done with school so I dont have to go back later in life. Id like to do other things on the side, but firefighting is my main goal.

    I am working on a Masters in Public Administration at Cal State Long Beach. Very good program and it is the same degree that a City Manager has. It is looked on very favorably for promotion in the fire service. Good luck with your choice.
