Bachelor of Science in EMS degree

Dear EMS Professional,

We are compiling information to support a proposal for a Bachelor’s of Science degree with a major in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) at Texas State University Round Rock in the fall of 2021.

The proposed plan would include entry points for those with:

  • A Paramedic certification from a CoAEMSP approved training program (a specific number of credits would apply toward the degree program) or
  • An Associate’s degree or
  • No EMS certification or degree

There are several proposed focus tracks including:

  • EMS Education/Instructor
    For students interested in becoming EMS educators or EMS simulation managers
  • Administration
    For students planning on working training officers, supervisors, directors, and regulators
  • Clinical
    Students who plan to work in flight medicine, critical care transports or as community health paramedics.  Courses dive deeper into anatomy, pathophysiology and long-term care of patients.
  • Pre-Health Professional (MD, PA, Graduate Allied Health)
    Designed to fulfill the prerequisites of medical schools and Physician Assistant schools.  This track features numerous courses in the “hard sciences” such as chemistry, biology, and physics.

    Allows student to select a variety of courses that best fit their individual needs
