Associate of Science in Health Studies

The dedicated faculty of the Health Studies program strives to provide students with a well-rounded health education experience that focuses on developing employable skills in critical thinking, effective communication, and collaboration. We give our students flexibility to complete the entry-level general education requirements they need to enter other Allied Health Programs at the North East Campus. And, because this program offers students the versatility to map their curriculum to their educational goals, they are able to seamlessly move general education credit from the ASHS program into other Allied Health curriculums without having to retake courses.
