A.S. Allied Health

A.S. Allied Health

Why Allied Health?

This two-year (60(62) credit) emphasis provides a course of study for those students interested in careers in a variety of healthcare professions. This option is designed for highly motivated students who have a strong interest in graduate training beyond a bachelor’s degree or health-related professional studies such as physical or occupational therapy, exercise science, athletic training, pharmacy, or medicine. As undergraduate degree and professional program admissions requirements vary, students should work closely with their academic advisor to select electives or request substitutions where appropriate. Students are strongly encouraged to identify a program and transfer school of interest early in their academic career to better inform the advising, course selection, and transfer process.

Upon completion of this program students will:

  • Be prepared to transfer into a variety of undergraduate majors in preparation for graduate study in health-related programs;
  • Obtain a strong science background in chemistry, human biology, and physics;
  • Complete a comprehensive general education core background for transfer to a four-year degree program;
  • Communicate effectively, both orally and in writing.

NOTE: 3 credits of either Humanities & Fine Arts or History & Social Sciences must meet the Cultural Diversity requirement.
