Career as fire investigator with BA in English?
Hey everyone! Here in a week I'll be starting my sophomore year at a local community college, which means I'll be graduating soon with an AA in English or General Studies. After that, I plan on going to Colorado to complete a BA in English, but I've really been looking into fire investigation, and it seems like a great fit. I'm a volunteer at the local department now, so I do have an idea of what I'd be doing.
My question is: if I were to pursue the English degree, would I still have a good chance of being hired as a fire investigator without copious amounts of further education?
Of course, I would work toward a certificate of some kind (achievement, completion, etc) for fire science/investigation, but I'm trying to avoid having to dedicate another 2 - 3 years of my life to getting a second degree.
I understand that as an investigator, reports would have to be written quite often, so I see the English degree helping possibly in that regard. I just wanted to get some advice from others out there!
Sorry for the long-winded question!!
I appreciate any help :)
