Health Science

Degree Offered: Associate in Applied Science

Credits Required: 60 (2017-2018 Academic Year)

Health Science refers to a broad field encompassing many careers.  CCBC offers an associate degree in health science in conjunction with more specialized training programs for students interested in degree-completion options.

An Associate of Science in Health Science degree is best suited for students holding credentials in health care from an accredited program or those who are exploring health care career options.  Studies encompass training in health care delivery, management, support and ethics; students can often apply credits earned from their health care professional training.  These may include various health care training programs, such as multiskilled health technician, and coding, which usually offer certificates rather than degrees.  This also affords graduates of hospital based diploma programs in both nursing and radiologic technology the opportunity for degree completion and a pathway to higher education.
