ALBANY, Ga. (AP) -- The Technical College System of Georgia and Albany State University have created a program to provide firefighters a pathway to a bachelor's degree.

Albany State University officials said Tuesday that the collaborative agreement allows students who earn an associate of applied science degree in fire science technology to apply their credits to a bachelor's of applied science in fire services administration at Albany State.

Officials say the credits must have been earned from an accredited school in the Georgia technical college system.

The bachelor degree program has been fine-tuned to suit the career paths of firefighters. Officials say in most cases, technical college students had to complete bachelor programs in public administration or business administration after earning their associate degree.
