Health Science (MAP)

The Health Science major is designed for allied health professionals with an Associate of Science (AS) degree who wish to obtain a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in preparation for attending a science-based graduate program.

The major focuses primarily on the physical and natural sciences. Although students from a variety of allied health backgrounds select this major, most are preparing to attend graduate programs in Physician Assistant, Pathologist Assistant, Radiologist Assistant, Master in Occupational Therapy or a Doctorate in Physical Therapy
