Degrees and Programs


We are the only University in the country where you can complete a bachelor of science degree in fire ecology and management, or you can complete a minor in fire ecology ecology and management while majoring in one of the other College of Natural Resources or University of Idaho degree programs. You could also complete a certificate program or take just a few courses. The flexibility of our programs allows students to discuss their long-term goals with advisors and then decide upon which courses or programs they should take to meet these goals.

Our programs are unique in breadth and depth. We promote an interdisciplinary approach which focuses on student-centered problem-based learning. This approach allows our students to learn not just the fundamental and in-depth concepts to be effective fire managers but to take part in a richer learning experience where they must learn to solve complex real-world problems, work within teams and think across educational boundaries.
