Fire Science degree
I need help. Does anyone know where an accredited Batchlors is availible for mail or internet format? I'm really wanting to advance my knowledge/carreer but don't have a university near-by that offers this major.
My full time job and family prohibit my leaving town to obtain one elsewhere! Help please!!!!!!!

Try the NFA web page. The have a degree at a distance program, formely known as the open learning fire service program for a BA degree for the fire service. There are several different universities involved with this program. Look them up.

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: (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
