Bachelor of Science in Emergency Services
in Emergency Services

Foundations for leadership and administration in fire and emergency services response organizations.

The Bachelor of Science in Emergency Services degree broadly encompasses all emergency services response disciplines in public and private sectors including: fire, emergency medical, investigation, engineering, aircraft rescue and firefighting, environmental, hazmat, inspection, dispatch, security, OSHA, instruction, public information and wildland firefighting.

The curriculum design for this degree is based on in the National Fire Academy's Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) Model Curriculum for a Bachelor’s Degree. When students complete courses through Embry-Riddle, they receive a National Fire Academy certificate just as if they completed the courses at the National Fire Academy. Beyond the six FESHE core courses, several additional ERAU-developed courses have been approved for students to receive NFA certificates — this is a unique advantage of taking classes at ERAU. 

The Bachelor of Science degree in Emergency Services is one of only a handful of programs around the world to have regional accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), IFSAC accreditation and FESHE recognition which all lead to demonstrate our program's excellence and student dedication. 

There are two specializations offered at the baccalaureate level:

  • Aviation Emergency Management Specialization has a focus on aircraft accident crash investigation, airport emergency management, aviation safety, and leadership in emergency response organizations.
  • Fire and Emergency Services Specialization focuses on emergency response administration, management, leadership, community risk reduction, and operational issues in emergency services.
