Fire Service Administration

Students develop Fire Service Administration concentrations to prepare for leadership in the fire service. Introductory and advanced courses emphasize:

  • administration and management of municipal fire services
  • protection and prevention strategies
  • fire investigation and forensics
  • community and political dimensions of fire service administration.

The program is intended to develop your skills in critical and analytical reasoning. Study of public administration and a variety of social science disciplines will take you beyond the technical aspects of the concentration as you progress toward your Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Professional Studies degree.
