With this competency-based bachelor’s program, instead of attending classes, you’ll work with faculty subject matter experts who will help you translate your knowledge, skills, and abilities into academic achievement.
The Momentum™ online Bachelor of Science in Fire Science Management offered by American Public University is specifically designed for fire service, public safety, and emergency management professionals seeking advanced education and leadership development in the discipline.

Our Bachelor of Science in Fire Science Management Momentum program offers the same relevant, accredited curriculum as the traditional program – the difference is how you learn the material. With Momentum, there are no general education classes to take, no directed assignment deadlines, and no worries about transferring credits.
How it Works
How do you learn without attending class? With American Public University Momentum programs, it starts with meeting your faculty mentor who helps you discover your strengths and guides you in creating your competency plan.
Your professors are your subject matter experts ready to share their knowledge in your field of study, to answer your individual questions about competency topics, and to provide feedback on your work.
You’ll continue to demonstrate mastery of one competency and move to the next until you complete your degree. There’s no waiting for the next term to start so you can move at your own pace.
