Minor in Fire Service Administration

Students may seek an academic minor in fire service administration.

The fire service administration minor complements the skills the student gains in his or her major discipline by providing knowledge of disaster planning and the administration of fire-protection services, including organization, planning, operating procedures, management, and allocation of limited resources.

Requirements for the Minor

A minor in fire service administration requires the completion of 15 credits of coursework in fire service administration. All FSCN courses apply. It is recommended that students take FSCN 302 as the first course for the minor (if they have not already applied the course toward other degree requirements).

Courses already applied toward other degree requirements (e.g., major or general education) may not be applied toward the minor. At least 9 credits must be earned in upper-level courses (numbered 300 or above). Prerequisites apply for all courses.
