Most associate's degrees in fire science or firefighting are almost exclusively for working as a structural firefighter. This is because a large number of the credits required for the degree often come from a basic firefighter academy, where you earn certificates for Firefighter I and Hazardous Materials Operations. If you're going to go through a firefighter academy and become certified as one, it makes sense that you'd pursue that as your job after graduation.

That said, there are a variety of jobs in the fire service that may be of interest to you, even if you decide not to become a firefighter. A Fire Science degree could be of benefit when trying to become a wildland firefighter, or Emergency Medical Technician / Paramedic. It could also be a stepping stone in a career of fire protection engineering (working on building fire alarms and sprinkler systems). With some additional training, you could become a Fire / Arson Investigator. You can also become a Fire Inspector, which reviews building construction blueprints and conducts on-site assessments to ensure residents and businesses are complying with local fire codes. If you get additional education in communication, you could work for a fire department as a public affairs officer, writing press releases giving interviews to the media, and photographing emergency scenes. If you like school, you could also use it as a step to get into chemistry, or study fire at an advanced academic level.
