Expand your health career options
The Advanced Allied Health specialization equips graduates with entry level management, group dynamic and supervisory skills as they relate to the allied health discipline.
Successful completion of this program allows students to pursue positions in nursing home administration, as counselors, geriatric program developers, social service coordinators and work in clinical or healthcare administration.
Students are prepared to work in the fields of health policy development, public health, product development, pharmaceutical sales and science journalism or pursue additional education in a graduate program.
The Program Guide link to the left outlines the progression of the program and helps with planning. The admissions process follows the general bachelor's degree enrollment steps, but in addition, if you are applying for Advanced Allied Health without an A.S. degree in a health sciences field, you must submit a Healthcare Experience Supplemental Information Form during the application process.
Designed for students holding an A.S. degree, 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.
