Fire Management Pathway to B.A. in Leadership Studies

Every semester, Cal Poly Humboldt proudly welcomes firefighting professionals of all levels to the Leadership Studies Bachelor's Degree Completion Program.

New cohorts begin every fall and spring.


This flexible, affordable CSU degree is offered 100% online and caters to working adults. Firefighters can transfer up to 60-70 lower division units and enter at the junior level. Most students graduate within two years for under $20,000.

Additionally, California Chief Officers can use State Fire Training courses to earn credit at Cal Poly Humboldt, further accelerating their time to degree.

To learn more about the State Fire Training (SFT) Pathway to a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies, with a concentration in Leadership Studies, go to the website of the Office of the State Fire Marshal, or contact us for more information and get a copy of the credit agreement for Chief Fire Officers.
