A new survey from Best Degree Programs names Eastern Oregon University’s online fire science degree as one of the top 30 online fire and emergency services offerings in the country.

EOU’s Fire Services Administration program landed at No. 16, and remains the only bachelor’s degree offering of its kind in Oregon.

The study follows recognition from BestColleges.com on its list of “Best Online Programs: Bachelor’s in Fire Science” in 2016 and 2017, as well as a top 10 listing by OnlineU in 2016.

“For prospective students, it helps give confidence that the program is recognized as one of the best FSA programs in the nation. Ergo, they’re getting good value for their educational dollar,” said department chair Kevin Walker. “Becoming recognized as a Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education compliant program by the National Fire Academy this spring will only enhance that sense of value.”
