The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree is a specialized degree. The specialist degree allows students to concentrate their elective coursework in the areas of fire science.
Fire Protection Technology (FFT) courses are offered through an open-learning program delivered via digital media. Students progress through the program by completing regular reading assignments and special research projects. Courses are developed using a concept known as Problem Based Learning (PBL). This method creates a learning environment through situations that require research, critical decision-making, information analysis, and problem-solving skills.
Most general education courses (English, math, Public Speaking) are available online through the Mississippi Virtual Community College. Students register for MSVCC courses through Meridian Community College or their local community college.
