Quinnipiac launches bachelor of science in health science studies
June 7, 2013 - The University has launched a new online degree completion program for individuals with associate degrees who would like to pursue either new positions in the health care industry, promotions in their current jobs or graduate degrees in related health care professions.
The online bachelor of science in health science studies enables associate of science degree holders to apply earned credits toward a bachelor's degree.
"Over the years, I have advised many health care employees who are working full-time who come to Quinnipiac University part-time to finish their BS degrees," said Christine Fitzgerald, professor and director of the program. "I am very glad we will now have more convenient and accelerated online courses to help them complete the program."
The program is both a career enhancer and career changer, said Edward O'Connor, dean of the School of Health Sciences.
"The new, totally online option to earn a bachelor of health science studies at Quinnipiac will have a broad appeal to those with college experience and/or health professions backgrounds, as well as those wishing to break into the health professions field," O'Connor said.
"The University is also committed, through Quinnipiac University Online, to providing access to a quality online learning experience for a non-traditional working population," said Cynthia Gallatin, associate vice president for online programs.
