Students selecting this option must have earned 30 credits in an accredited college or university with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.7. Courses in which students have earned a C- or less will not be counted for transfer credit, however, if the cumulative GPA is 2.7 or better, admission may be granted.
The Health Sciences degree completion program is designed for students who have completed at least one year of college or an associate’s degree but who have not previously completed a baccalaureate degree. Graduates of the program will be prepared by rigorous courses relevant to a variety of non-clinical roles in the health care field. Depending on the electives or minor chosen, students may continue health-related interests in a wide variety of fields. Jobs available to Health Sciences graduates include health care analysts, community health workers, program planners or evaluators, workers for non-governmental organizations such as the American Red Cross, medical and public health writers, health promotion educators, patient and family liaisons, and administrators of health care organizations. Graduates are also competitively positioned for advanced education in public health, health sciences, journalism or health professions.
