Fire and Emergency Services Administration

The Fayetteville State University B.S. in Fire and Emergency Services Administration degree program has modeled itself after the National Fire Academy's Fire & Emergency Services Higher Education curriculum and is currently in the process of seeking FESHE Recognition for the program and nine of its courses.


According to FESHE, since 1999 FESHE leaders have worked to produce through consensus, a standardized undergraduate curriculum that is national in scope, content and outcomes. There now exists a robust national model curriculum of fire-related and EMS management courses for colleges and universities to adopt as their own. All the courses share common titles, catalog descriptions, outlines and content which provide a national core of knowledge and competencies delivered by the FESHE programs.
