When a fire truck comes whizzing around the corner, do you have an impulse to jump on board and lend a hand? If so, you have something in common with fire science majors, many of whom have known since childhood that it was their calling to fight fire.
As a fire science major, you’ll learn how to handle fire extinguishers, chain saws, and other tools of the trade. You’ll also learn how to control different types of fires, investigate fires, clear smoke-filled buildings, rescue victims, and deal with hazardous materials. You’ll even learn how to get along with your teammates at the firehouse.
