Emergency Medical Services Information

Develop critical thinking and decision-making skills to effectively lead rapid response

As an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) major at Franklin Pierce University you will study the social science aspect of rapid response.

Explore legal, political, and regulatory assessments in EMS settings, as well as the study of technology-based health applications and healthy work environments. Develop critical thinking and decision-making skills to effectively manage emergency situations.

Classes are offered in hybrid format, with four courses featured exclusively online. This non-clinical degree program does not lead to EMT or paramedic certifications; however, you should plan to obtain an EMT certification to enhance your marketability after graduation.

You can also plan to work on campus as a security officer, EMT, or firefighter. These experiences will position you well for connections to top-tier organizations where Franklin Pierce students have interned, including the American Red Cross, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, and more.
