The Fire Science Program is designed for individuals pursuing a career in fire service and related fields. Some fire departments offer hiring, promotional, and salary incentives to associate degree program graduates. This program is based on the curriculum recommended by the Fire Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) division of the United States Fire Administration (USFA).
Other areas of employment for Fire Science graduates include fire equipment sales and service, municipal fire protection, fire prevention inspection in industry and architectural firms, investigation for insurance companies and emergency medical services. Upon petition, students who have completed programs approved by the Illinois State Fire Marshall's Office will be granted equivalent credit toward an associate degree in Fire Science.
Courses from this program may transfer into Southern Illinois University at Carbondale's (SIUC) Bachelor of Science in Fire Service Management after review with a program advisor. In addition, courses from this program may transfer to other colleges and universities that allow students to transfer into a four-year program. For more information, contact the college or university in which you wish to transfer.
