Curriculum for students entering program in 2014-15.

The degree of Associate in Science with a major in Health Science is awarded upon successful completion of the program.

This program is designed to provide the foundation for any allied health field.  The degree may be personalized to meet student interests in diverse careers, from healthcare administration to direct patient contact.  The flexible curriculum can be used as a strong base in furthering educational pursuits – degrees in physical therapy, health information management, dietetics, public health, pharmacology, and exercise science, among others – or as a distinct, self-contained degree for professionals seeking career advancement.

Evaluation of credit received from a college or hospital-based program of study in a health-related field may result in transfer credit or advanced-standing credit toward the degree.

A candidate for this highly individualized degree must accumulate a minimum of 64 total credit hours, including those shown in the table at right.
