120 semester hours of credit required for degree

The bachelor of science in allied health is open to those students interested in careers in healthcare and related fields. The major is broad-based and provides in depth background for the student who wishes to enter the allied health professions or wants to continue their education on the master’s level.

General Education Requirements 

All students are required to complete a minimum of 9 semester hours in each of the three areas of humanities, social science, and science/mathematics. A Semester hour consists of one hour per week in a classroom per semester or two to three hours in laboratory or fieldwork per semester. This requirement is based on the conviction that a baccalaureate degree represents more than expertise in a specific field. Students broaden themselves by taking courses in academic areas that have traditionally been at the heart of an undergraduate  education. Students should work closely with advisors in selecting courses appropriate to their interests and academic needs. For more information regarding the General Education Requirements, please see the navigation bar in the catalog or General Education  .

Courses taken on pass/no pass basis may not be used to satisfy the university distribution requirement. Both semester-long and certain module courses may be used to satisfy distribution requirements.
