The College of Public Service and Community Solutions

The executive fire administration concentration is a part of the Master of Arts in Public Safety Leadership and Administration is offered by the College of Public Service & Community Solutions through ASU Online. The 33-hour program can be completed in as little as one year. A culminating experience is a required element in the program. These mentored, applied projects tie theory to practice. In doing so, they represent opportunities for students to make direct and positive impacts in their home communities.

Students pursuing the executive fire administration degree will have a practical understanding of technical, managerial and public policy aspects of fire administration and community risk reduction. The EFA curriculum includes public policy, budgeting and finance, emergency services operations analysis and innovation in fire and emergency services. Students have the flexibility to explore related topic areas such as emergency medical services, homeland security and emergency management.

The capstone applied project course allows students to apply concepts and methods learned in the PSLA program toward a solution to a practical fire service operational, fiscal, or public policy problem. EFA graduates will gain leadership skills to influence the future of fire service organizations. Individuals earning an PSLA are well prepared to perform managerial duties in federal, state and local fire departments, emergency management agencies, fire protection engineering firms, the insurance industry and related organizations.
