Paramedic Concentration

Students seeking a degree in Human Services with paramedic prior learning must have completed a paramedic program and be licensed by the State of Colorado as a Paramedic.

Students receive 24 credits toward the major for their completed paramedic coursework; 8 credits count for HSP 2080, Practicum I, which is required for all Human Service majors. The other 16 credits count toward the completion of the concentration.

In order to have the credits transferred to MSU Denver, bring documentation of the license and proof completion of a paramedic program to the Chair of Human Services. The credits are only applicable if you major in Human Services.
