This program provides a foundation for students interested in a health career. It is intended as a transfer program and has three defined tracks, each of which has 60-62 credit hours of well-structured course work:
- Track 1: Nutrition is for students who wish to pursue advanced degrees in nutrition and dietetics.
- Track 2: Baccalaureate provides a strong base to pursue academic interests in many health fields such as exercise science, public health, pre-medical, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, and pre-veterinary programs.
- Track 3: Allied Health is for students who want to transfer into an NHTI Allied Health program and fulfills several program pre- and co-requisites. (NOTE: This program does not meet the AMA Allied Health degree requirement for NHTI’s Diagnostic Medical Sonography program.)
Students are required to take all of the courses listed in the Health Science Core, all the courses listed in their chosen track, and 1-2 electives. These electives need to be chosen from the list provided in the core.
