The Associate in Science degree in Allied Health Science is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year program or a community college allied-health occupation program, such as Respiratory Therapy, Dental Hygiene, Radiologic Technology, or Registered Nurse. Students who plan to apply to a specific allied health occupation program must first complete a set of prerequisite courses. Students who complete the prerequisites for one of these programs will complete this major in the process. Prerequisites can vary slightly from one school to another or may change from one year to the next, so students should check with the targeted school for the current prerequisites needed. Careers in Allied Health professions are among the fastest growing occupations.
