About Fire & Emergency Management Administration

Oklahoma State University’s graduate program in Fire and Emergency Management Administration Program is one of the oldest programs in the nation. Students receive a superior academic experience in preparing leaders in the fire services, disaster management, emergency management professions, as well as educators and researchers in these fields.
Students can complete degree requirements either online as distance students or as a resident on campus. Online Graduate courses typically meet in real time.  Distance students join on-campus students in lecture, discussion, and group work, utilizing state of the art classrooms designed for distance education.  The FEMP program requires that a minimum of nine hours must be completed on campus in Stillwater, Oklahoma. This can be accomplished during one-week courses in the summer.
The program was established in 1996 as a Master of Arts specialization in Fire and Emergency Management within political science.  In 1999, the degree changed to the Master of Science in Fire and Emergency Management Administration. The curriculum includes public policy, strategic administration and organizational management, human dimensions of disaster, leadership, and terrorism.
