Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences
Prepare for advanced clinical practice, leadership and management with a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences. Learn online, in person, or with a blend of both options. Either way, you’ll enjoy working in a small class setting alongside expert faculty who support your personal and professional growth.
Students who take the hybrid classes meet once a week year-round, completing the curriculum in approximately seven semesters. Students who transfer credits, or who take additional courses per semester, may complete the degree in less time.
Applicants must have graduated from a regionally accredited associate program or hospital-based health sciences program with a 2.0 minimum GPA. They must also provide their license, certification, registry or eligibility for the same.
Applicants need to be working a minimum of 8 hours a week in a health care setting.
Upon proof of certification, registration, or licensure, students are awarded 33 lower division Heath Science credits for their coursework completed through their Associate degree or diploma program.
