The Health Concentration within the General Studies program has been designed for several groups of students:
- Students who have a desire to work in the health care industry, but who have not yet chosen a specific health field
- Students who view their local community college as a convenient, less expensive way to complete a four-year degree program.
With careful planning, students will be able to earn credits that will fit their intended health major field of study. Matriculated students will work with a faculty advisor to design a program of study that meet individuals needs.
Because of potentially heavy demand for health programs, students are advised that acceptance into the Associate in Science in General Studies Degree does not guarantee acceptance in or give preferential treatment to an applicant to a specific health program at a later date.
