The Science of Fire

This program, the first bachelor’s degree program of its kind in the nation, will prepare you to become an ecological professional in one of the fastest growing areas in natural resources. Examine why and how wildfires burn in forests, woodlands, shrublands and grasslands and its effects on animals, people and vegetation.

Points of Distinction

Our students benefit from access to the College’s nearby Experimental Forest, where they actively participate in prescribed burning classes and forestry operations. Service-learning field trips organized by The Nature Conservancy, tribes, and regional land management agencies are open to qualified students and undergraduate courses have access to an on-site fire behavior combustion laboratory. Many undergraduates volunteer with the Moscow Fire Department in exchange for accommodation or participate in a very active Student Association for Fire Ecology (SAFE) club that works with students to achieve fire experiences and connects students with existing wildland fire crews.
