School of Nutrition and Health Promotion
The Bachelor of Applied Science in health sciences is a fully online program, ideal for people in health-related fields who have an associate of applied science (AAS) degree and want to earn their four-year degree.
The health sciences field is the single largest industry in the country, accounting for more than 14 million jobs. Many of the fastest growing occupations today are in health sciences. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, health sciences occupations are expected to generate as many as 3 million new jobs by 2016. In addition, the field of health education is expected to grow by 20 percent, or roughly 25,000 new jobs, in the next decade.
This is a cross-disciplinary program designed to equip students with knowledge and skills that will position them for a range of career opportunities in health-related fields.
Our graduates will be well prepared for success as managers in their original fields of expertise, such as Medical Radiology, Nuclear Medicine Technology and Histology Technology. Other career opportunities, depending upon the focus of original AAS study, include positions as health educators, elder services program coordinators, long-term care health and wellness coordinators, and community nutrition aides. Our students will also be uniquely qualified for graduate study in applied programs such as gerontology, family sciences and health education.
