Most students in the University of Cincinnati Fire Science & Emergency program take coures in a distance format, turning in assignments via Blackboard and taking final exams in their home communities. But some prefer a face-to-face format for certain subjects. For those, the department offers residency courses.
A mini-residency is one course taught for four or five days. Residencies are collections of courses, say Statistics, a Humanities class and a fire core class, taught simultaneously at a convenient location.
UC's Fire Science & Emergency Management students live across the United States and some live in Canada and beyond. At the end of each Spring Quarter (June or July), we will seek to hold residency coursesa in Cincinnati (either on campus or at local fire stations). Individual professors can also hold residency courses at host fire departments at other times.
Autumn quarter residency for FST480, Disaster Planning and Control, is planned for October 17-21, 2010 at the Kenton County Drill Field I, in Covington, KY. Click Disaster P-C for the flyer.
