Health Sciences Home

Mission and Overview

The  division prepares students for immediate employment in nine distinct areas of the health care industry.  Department Chairs and faculty maintain close contact with agencies and health care providers throughout the area, and most students complete clinical site assignments in those facilities to obtain practical field experience before graduation.  Degree programs are monitored by national accreditation agencies.  Most professional programs require licensure examinations after graduation.  Class sizes are limited and all entering students must comply with departmental mathematics and science prerequisites.  Those who do not comply are given the opportunity to complete prerequisites while earning general education credits toward their desired health science degree.

Certificate programs require fewer credits for completion and offer more specific training without earning the AAS degree.
