MPA in Fire Service & Administration

Fire services in today’s society go far beyond the paternal act of putting out fires. The modern fire service and administration professional is required to manage complex rescue and safety situations, while maintaining the expertise to answer any legal, ethical, fiscal, and administrative questions that may be present during or after such a situation. Demand for experienced – and well-trained – personnel in the public safety sector is continually growing, and the need for well-prepared fire and police chiefs and other public administrators is advancing simultaneously. Personnel with experience in fire service and administration often are counted on to direct both the operational, fiscal, and developmental aspects of fire departments, fire prevention services and organizations, as well as fire inspection, investigation, and mitigation duties.

Those who complete an MPA in Fire Service & Administration graduate degree will be primed for management opportunities in municipal fire departments, forest service fire departments, as well as various private sector management positions. Before enrolling in a degree program, prerequisite coursework often includes basic computer science and math experience – including statistics – while coursework within the program will regularly include legal studies, in relation to fire protection, fiscal management, and inspection and investigation. Human resources coursework is often included, as well the study of MIS and government administration.
