UW Oshkosh Center for New Learning


UW Oshkosh's Fire and Emergency Response Management (FERM) program prepares students to manage complex public health and safety organizations. The first of its kind in Wisconsin and developed by fire chiefs, this Bachelor of Applied Studies degree is designed for working firefighters and emergency response personnel.

Applicants must have successfully completed an associate degree in an appropriate fire science area, such as Fire Protection, Paramedic Technician, Wildland Firefighting or Emergency Management. FERM students receive a block of 45 credits, along with additional general education credits, for their associate degree. Most students transfer approximately 60 credits.
