Why Choose Allied Health Education?

The Associate of Applied Science in Allied Health Sciences degree provides an opportunity for three separate groups of students to earn a degree. First, those students who are required to enroll in an associate degree program. Second, the program benefits students who, choose to only complete an associate degree program. The third group of individuals who benefits from this degree is those who have a credential or license in a health profession but who require a degree for employment enhancement.

These courses can also be applied to the bachelor of science degrees in the College of Allied Health Sciences. As an Allied Health Sciences major, you will be assigned a faculty advisor to assist you with program planning.

Students may enter the program in the fall, spring or summer semester.
