Fire Sciences Minor
Prepare for a career in fire management
The Wildland Fire Sciences and Management program at the University of Montana is a unique academic program for students motivated to solve problems in wildland fire — and is Montana's only academic program in wildland fire. Explore fire's role on the land, manage fire in forests, restore ecosystems, and gain employable skills — while preparing for exciting and challenging careers.
You can earn a minor in Fire Sciences & Management or a bachelor's degree in Resource Conservation with a Fire Management area of study. Graduate students can specialize in fire in their master's or doctoral programs.
