Bachelor's degree programs
Individualized Bachelor's Degree Program
This program is ideal for students who have previously earned college credit or who have unique educational goals that are not met by traditional programs.
A faculty advisor will work closely with the student to build a health science studies or liberal studies program around the University Curriculum that:
- maximizes on any previously earned college credit (such as an associate's degree program, Credit for Prior Learning, or part-time studies)
- allows maximum flexibility in choosing courses to meet individual needs without adding to the total number of credits needed to graduate
- incorporates new courses that build in-depth knowledge in the student's area of interest.
BS in Health Science Studies
The health science studies program provides an excellent opportunity for health care and science professionals who hold an associate's degree to obtain the bachelor's degree. The program provides the maximum utilization of previously acquired credits from academic and clinical training. An individual curriculum plan, approved by an academic adviser, can be designed that allows flexibility in choosing courses to build concentrations in the health science fields, as well as in other areas such as business, management, psychology and sociology. Our bachelor of science degree program in health science studies can usually can be completed through evening study and normally does not require students to take classes during the day.
BA in Liberal Studies
The liberal studies major offers the opportunity for adult and non-traditional students to choose concentrations in a number of fields. Students have maximum flexibility in the utilization of previously earned credit and in the selection of new courses to meet their personal goals. Each program is individually designed by the student with approval by the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Students complete the College of Arts and Sciences requirements, 15 credits at the 300-level and nine to ten courses in the area of concentration. Learn more about the College of Arts and Sciences.
BA and BS Degrees in Traditional Majors
Part-time students may also enroll in virtually all of the bachelor's degree programs offered by the academic schools of the University. Athletic training/sports medicine, occupational therapy and nursing require full-time status, as does the physical therapy and physician's assistant program (neither accepts transfer students at the undergraduate level).
Our bachelor of science degree program in health science studies can usually can be completed through evening study and normally does not require students to take classes during the day. Other majors in business, arts and sciences, health sciences and communications also may be taken on a part-time basis, but course work will need to be taken during the day.
