    There is a posting on the (www.fire-ems.net) in the INFO area post #9572309576767 where West Ga. Tech. is offering a Fire Science Degree online. He say's he has two fire classes online now along with the core classes and more to come soon. I haven't looked into it, so I don't know if they offer a Bachelors or Associates or what. He gave his e-mail: (tsmith@westga.tec.ga.us) and his phone: (706)845-4323 x5748 . There is also a web site: (www.firedawg.com) that has listings with links to colleges and universities that offer Fire Degrees. This is a nationwide listing but I don't know if it's complete. The schools listed offer Associates, Bachelors, and there are a few Masters Degree Programs. I don't think I've seen any Doctorates in there, if there even is such a thing for the fire service. These schools offer Fire Science, Fire Technology, Fire Engineering, Fire Administration, etc. You'll have to fishem' out. Hope this helps and stay safe!

    I can vouch for Cincinnati's program. I'm currently enrolled in their Associate's Degree program for Fire Science and have so far found it to be pretty rewarding.

    They're a little stingy on credits transfering though.

    Good luck!

    Stay Safe.
