Step 2:
Build a schedule by selecting classes that are "still needed" for your major and for which you have completed the prerequisites.

Academic Degrees Offered

The Health Sciences Department offers three degrees.

  1. The Associate in Science (AS) in Health Sciences degree gives students an understanding of the career possibilities in healthcare and how their particular interests fit into the range of occupations within the healthcare industry. This degree is open to the general student body and students may self-declare this degree as their major.
  2. The Bachelor of Science (BS) in Healthcare Policy and Management is open to all students in good academic standing and allows for continuation of studies beyond the AS Health Sciences degree. This BS degree prepares students for entry-level administrative careers that support the operations of healthcare facilities, government agencies, and related industries.
  3. The Bachelor of Science (BS) in Health Services Administration is a career development degree for individuals who already have a significant background experience in healthcare. This degree is only open to senior-level students who hold at least an Associate Degree AND who are either licensed healthcare providers or individuals with the equivalent of two years, full-time relevant work experience in a healthcare facility. This degree seeks to build upon the students existing credentials and work experience so that they may apply their skills to new occupational settings. Interested students may not self-declare this major; instead, they need to apply to the department and undergo a review of their credentials to determine if they meet the degree's entrance requirements.
