    There are various career choices you will have after completing the online bachelor's degree. They include but are not limited to a career in:

    • Fire department management
    • Emergency Medical Service management
    • Emergency Management
    • Insurance companies
    • Federal Government including DHS, FEMA, HHS, DOT
    • State Government
    • Private industry such as oil companies, industry management, and business

    Note that the degree program does not certify you as a firefighter or provide you with EMS certification, but rather prepares you academically. Most fire and EMS departments are looking for personnel with a higher education degree. Many want personnel to be at least associate degree-prepared, and in order for promotion, require at least a bachelor's and, in some instances, a master's degree.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.

    Online students at the University of Florida are eligible for consideration for a wide range of federal, state and institutional aid as administered by the Office for Student Financial Affairs (SFA), which also administers a limited number of privately funded scholarships. These include:

    • Grants. Considered gift aid — no repayment required — and awarded to students showing the greatest financial need.
    • Scholarships. Considered gift aid, as they do not have to be repaid and do not require recipients to perform services.
    • Student Employment. Considered self-help aid, as students are offered aid in exchange for a service. The Student Employment Office assists enrolled students seeking part-time employment through various job programs.
    • Loans. Considered self-help aid as loans are a form of aid that must be repaid. UF primarily offers student loans through the Federal Direct Loan Program, but there are a number of other loan programs available at UF.
    • Non-SFA Administered Aid. Numerous aid programs are administered by entities outside of SFA including State of Florida aid programs, SFA Resource Center scholarships, academic scholarships and endowed scholarships.
