The baccalaureate degree program leading to the Bachelor of Science in Applied Science with a major in Allied Health is intended to serve professional health-related, associate-degree graduates who wish to upgrade their academic credentials. The goal of the BSAS degree program is to provide advanced educational opportunities beyond the technical scope of the graduate’s associate degree. The program provides students additional knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that will enhance their career mobility in the health-care setting. In addition, the degree program allows students to pursue further education at the graduate level. The program is based on a two-plus-two concept where the associate-degree courses provide the technical education for the first two years of the baccalaureate-degree program. Following graduation with an associate’s degree, the student articulates directly into the plus-two component of the program. The plus-two component consists of a core of multi-disciplinary courses, a student-selected minor, and general University requirements.
