A Bachelor’s degree is a four-year undergraduate degree, although it may take students anywhere from three to seven years to complete. A Bachelor of Arts usually focuses on the liberal arts, the sciences or both.

What is a BA in Fire Science? This field of study goes beyond the more traditional duties of a firefighter. Students of fire science are introduced to the knowledge required to educate the public about safety, spread awareness about fire safety through community outreach and conduct fire inspections, among other things. Because firefighters are typically first responders, students are trained EMTs and paramedics. This complex field has actually grown to include studies in hazardous materials and how to rescue people from many harrowing situations.

If you want to train to be a real life hero, fire science is a great field to pursue. Along with fighting fires, students are taught to communicate well with people from all walks of life. Community outreach and education are big parts of this area of study. Students learn ways to become an active part of society. This translates to time outside of work as well.

Depending on whether you take a more traditional on-campus route or choose to earn a degree online, there is an affordable path to securing a BA in Fire Science. Costs vary depending on program and location.

Many graduates with a fire science degree have visions of becoming heroic firefighters. Although this is the traditional route, there are other options. A Bachelor of Arts in Fire Science prepares students for careers in emergency medical services, police departments and forensic sciences. Program related coursework varies from school to school. Some career options require training in specific areas, such as criminal investigation or higher degrees. If you wish to go into a field other than that of a firefighter, make sure the program you choose supports such a deviation.

There are many opportunities to earn a fire science degree. Online degrees are becoming more popular and allow for a more flexible schedule. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
