The Allied Health concentration consists of the professionals that are the allies in health care systems. At the Associate level, the allied health professionals are often licensed professionals involved in the delivery of health services. Once these professionals complete this program to receive their Bachelor’s degree, they often seek additional responsibilities in leadership, communication, education or even research throughout their career. The courses students take will cover a variety of topics such as: diseases, drugs, end of life ethics, gerontology, public health, disaster management, and occupational safety. Upon completion of the Allied Health concentration, students will round out their education by learning how to address to complex and cross-cultural issues that are involved with the health care profession on a variety of local, regional, and national levels.
