"While fire protection services have traditionally been a working-class position, and often staffed by volunteers," as BDC editors explain, "contemporary fire services have become increasingly professionalized." According to the editors, "Many municipalities have begun setting minimum education standards for firefighters, and administrative positions often require a higher degree." In fact, "many entry-level jobs in fire protection prefer a bachelor's degree, and leadership positions very often require at least a bachelor's." For working professionals, "growing standards mean going back to school to keep pace and stay competitive on the job market."

BDC editors underline the importance of choosing between an on-campus or online degree program. As they explain, "Finding a professional job as a firefighter or administrator is complicated, and for cities, finding qualified firefighters and fire services leaders can be challenging." Online learning is convenient for working adults; "for working adults who already have an associate's degree or some transferable college courses, an only degree completion program can be a convenient way to earn a degree." On-campus programs, of course, means getting plugged in with connections and mentorship. In either case, "Fire science degrees programs are becoming a standard all over the US, and students interested in a career in fire protection services would be smart to start there."

Bachelor's Degree Center has been providing advice, resources, and rankings on the best traditional and online bachelor's degree programs since 2014. Completely independent and unbiased, BDC is working to be the ultimate resource for new high school graduates, working adults returning to school, and nontraditional students.
