Move up the ladder with a degree in this hot field
TCC’s fire science program opens doors to employment for career firefighters and other fire safety professionals who want to enhance their job skills. Taught entirely by faculty members who are current or former firefighters, the program also offers online, hybrid, and evening classes with convenient “flip-flop” scheduling, meaning students can come one of two separate nights and receive the same information.
