Health Science Degree

Associate Degree Programs

The Health Science program is designed for students who wish to explore career opportunities in healthcare.  Students in this program will learn about the multifaceted aspects of healthcare while they develop skills in patient care and safety, and receive hands-on training and professional certification in an area such as Sterile Processing, Patient Care Technician, or Emergency Medical Technician.  While immersing themselves in the physical environment (the sights, sounds and smells) of healthcare, through the College's SIMS Medical Center (a nationally recognized patient simulation facility), students will also pursue essential coursework in math, physical science and social science-coursework that is considered foundational for any health career.
