Program Details

The University of West Florida offers a Bachelor of Science degree completion in Health Sciences with a concentration in Allied Health. This is a two-year capstone degree program that provides students with an A.A., A.S. or A.A.S. degrees from an accredited two-year college with an opportunity to pursue an online B.S. Degree in Health Sciences. This program is designed for health care workers with similar degrees who need to complete a Bachelor’s degree for advancement in their professional careers or current positions. The degree allows students to build on their previous education and training (receive credit for their prior education) and complete requirements for the B.S. degree in Health Sciences.

Students are eligible for the program and who choose the Allied Health concentration must complete a total of 83 credit hours entirely online. Even though Allied Health students have separate courses, all Health Science students must complete the six required core courses. These include; Legal Fundamentals of Health Care and Public Health, Health Information Systems, Health Economics, Business Analysis and Decision Making in Health Care, Advances in Health Sciences Technology, and Health Sciences Research Seminar.

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.


Students must hold a two-year degree.
