Associate of Science - Healthcare Concentration TransferThis program is available at the Beavercreek, Springfield - Leffel Lane and Xenia locations.
The Associate of Science (AS) Health Care concentration is designed for individuals desiring to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a bachelor's degree in a healthcare field. Four-year institutions generally require that students spend a significant portion of their first two years taking courses that build their knowledge and skills in general education. An AS degree focuses on general education courses and a minimum of 40 credit hours must come from areas 1-6 listed in the Associate of Science section of the catalog. This AS degree is structured to include those general education courses that are commonly included in many bachelor degree healthcare programs. The remaining credit hours are divided among the College Success course, courses in the student's area of concentration, and elective courses. All students must take the College Success course in order to complete the AS degree.
Individuals completing the curriculum that follows will satisfy the College's AS degree requirements and many of the general education courses required for transfer to a four-year healthcare program. In addition, individuals will complete several courses that focus on healthcare and will prove to be especially helpful to those students interested in a career in healthcare.
