Master's in Fire and Emergency Management Administration
OSU's Master of Science in Fire and Emergency Management Administration is one of
the oldest programs in the nation. Students receive a superior academic experience
in preparing professionals for leadership positions in the critical service professions
of fire and rescue, emergency management, emergency medical services, law enforcement,
homeland security and related fields in both the public and private sectors.
The Fire and Emergency Management program is a 33 credit hour program that facilitates
professional networking among its students and with leaders in the field. The curriculum
is designed to provide students with the theoretical and substantive knowledge about
management structures and functions, analytical skills that enable the practical application
of theories, research skills that enable critical analysis of real-world problems,
and written communication skills necessary for effective management.
One of the unique benefits of our program is the interaction with students
from across the country and internationally. Courses from this program have been offered
in Turkey, Singapore, and the United Kingdom.
