Allied Health

Vision Statement

The Bachelor of Science in Allied Health and Healthcare Leadership (BSAH) program provides adult learners the opportunity to complete an undergraduate degree in coursework related to leadership for science-based administrative positions, critical thinking skills, and ethical training required of today’s health professionals. The BSAH program allows students to complete their degrees through a hybrid format, with a schedule that is flexible and conducive for working professionals. It is our goal to supply regional healthcare employers with competently trained administrators.

Undergraduate Curriculum

Successful completion of this Program requires that students earn a total of 126 credits. The curriculum for the Undergraduate Degree Completion Program (UDCP) consists of a combination of general education and courses in the major. The remaining credits may be earned through transfer (including CLEP) and/or elective courses.

Advisement

Students will be assigned an academic advisor upon entry into the program. The academic advisor will meet with each assigned student three (3) times annually: FallSpring, and Summer. The academic advisor will assist students with their academic planning towards their degree completion. Students will also be assigned a capstone advisor to assist with their capstone project sessions. The capstone advisor will guide the student through the capstone process as well as be available for one-on-one meetings.
