Academic Plan of Study
The Bachelor of Science Allied Health Education is a 120-credit hour program that will provide students with an interdisciplinary degree option encompassing a variety of allied health topics. This degree will aid those who wish to seek jobs as health educators, administrators, patient advocates, and community health workers, in a variety of healthcare settings. The curriculum is designed as a 2+2 program, with the ability to create a career ladder from 2 year Community and Technical College Associate degree programs. Once the Associate of Science degree is earned and professional licensure obtained, students may choose to enter the workforce and continue on to the baccalaureate level. Students with no allied health background may enter the program in the 4 year traditional track.
