Building a healthier world
The Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Health Sciences has three concentrations: Advanced Allied Health and Biomedical Sciences plus the fully online 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.
All three Applied Health Sciences tracks are designed for students holding an A.S. or A.A. degree from a regionally accredited institution, with the Medical Imaging specialization having additional licensure requirements for admission. The Applied Health Science degree programs are also a cost-saving option for health-related A.S. degree students seeking an affordable bachelor degree option for career advancement such as students in the EFSC Dental Assisting Technology and Management, Dental Hygiene, Emergency Medical Services, Medical Laboratory Technology, Nursing RN, Radiography, and Veterinary Technology programs. The Biomedical Sciences option is also an option for Chemical Technology A.S. degree graduates.
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.
