FIRE PROTECTION DEGREES

UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES

It's rather uncommon to find an American studying fire protection. Each subject grants about 6,200 four-year degrees a year; 1,423 people were conferred four-year degrees in fire protection last May, making it the US' 180th most popular concentration. Columbia Southern University​ granted more of those degrees than any other school in the USA (408), and colleges in Alabama handed out more degrees than any US State (412).

Undergraduate degrees in fire protection are available at 45 schools in the United States; ergo, it may probably be tricky to rout out the right program. Bachelor's degrees in the typical major are granted at 4.3 times more institutions than degrees in fire protection, making it the 290th most broadly offered degree.

GRADUATE DEGREES

While 93% of last spring's degrees in fire protection were undergraduate degrees; 7% were postgraduate degrees. Fire protection is the 300th most popular postgrad degree in the nation, with 101 degrees conferred. For some context, the average subject is 27.5 times more popular among postgraduate students than fire protection.

In Total, 1,524 students received a bachelor's or higher in fire protection last year.

ONLINE FIRE PROTECTION DEGREES

759 of those 1,524 alumni (49.8%) were conferred their degrees totally remotely - 705 undergrads and 54 master's & doctor's students. As you've presumably gathered, in general, fire protection is a bit more popular than the average online field among undergraduate students. It is the 43rd most popular online focus with 46.5% more remote students than the average subject. For postgraduate students, it ranks 157th, and is 91.2% under the American average (616).

Columbia Southern University​ awarded the most online undergraduate degrees in fire protection in the nation (408).

Further, Alabama graduates more fire protection online students than any other state (408 four-year degrees awarded last year). Alabama independently accounts for 58% of the country's remote students.

49.5% of all undergraduate degrees in fire protection are completed through a fully remote program, (53.5% for grad degrees). Columbia Southern University's​ last undergraduate class contained a higher percentage of online fire protection majors than any other college in the United States (12.22%). 408 students in their 3,339 student class received an online undergraduate degree in fire protection. They offer 15 programs remote, and had 14,364 enrolled online undergraduates last fall. That's 100% of the student body.

Undergraduate degrees in fire protection are available online at 23 institutions countrywide, making it the 290th most broadly available online degree. A tad over one half of institutions furnishing the degree even have a fully online option, and roughly 70% of the schools handing out the degree online are public. Florida has the most online programs of any state, with 3 institutions to choose from.

If you would like to study fire protection and are self motivated, you may want to consider the University of Florida-Online, as it has the 3rd best fire protection program in the USA. It also confers an additional 21 degrees online, so you can try some classes from another area of study. Further, 3,926 remote undergraduates study at the institution, which is 100% of the whole student body.
