Building a healthier world

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Health Sciences has three concentrations: Advanced Allied Health and Biomedical Sciences plus the new Medical Imaging Specialization that started Fall 2016. All are intended to provide graduates with the knowledge and skills to make an impact in the expanding healthcare field. 

Students in all specializations receive a broad-based foundation in global and national healthcare issues and trends, ethical and legal issues, health promotion and disease prevention, evidence-based practice, allied healthcare research, healthcare systems management and healthcare based informatics. This B.A.S. degree is eligible as part of the $10,000 Bachelor's Degree Program.

All of Eastern Florida State College's bachelor's degree programs are designed with the working student in mind so classes are offered in flexible formats to include day, evening, online and hybrid. The degree is also Financial Aid eligible. Students are admitted to the Applied Health Sciences program in the January and August terms only.

The program is designed to articulate with allied health related degree programs similar to the following A.S. degrees offered by Eastern Florida State College: Dental Assisting Technology and Management, Dental Hygiene, Emergency Medical Services, Health Information Technology, Medical Laboratory Technology, Nursing RN, Radiography, and Veterinary Technology. The A.S. degree in Chemical Technology articulates with the Biomedical Sciences concentration. An A.A. degree from a regionally accredited institution is also acceptable for admission into this degree.

An Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree does not meet the minimum eligibility requirement for entry into this program. AAS degree holders who intend to transfer into the BAS program should consult with an academic advisor to review coursework and determine the best transfer options.
