The purpose of the bachelor of science degree in Health Sciences is to allow students who have earned an associate of science degree from an accredited clinical program to obtain a baccalaureate degree in an area of concentration that complements their degree. Sixty credit hours of coursework from the associate degree fulfills the freshman and sophomore course requirements. Students must declare either a psychology or biology concentration at the time of enrollment in the degree program.
Students who have completed an Associate of Science degree from an accredited clinical program are qualified for enrollment in the Bachelor of Health Sciences Degree program.
The length of the program depends on the number of credit hours that the student earned at the associate degree level and the number of upper level courses that transfer.
