The Bachelor of Science in Allied Health is a completion degree for graduates of associate degrees in the numerous allied health disciplines where there is no discipline specific bachelor degree available. This degree allows two-year health degree students the opportunity to advance in their chosen health profession or continue into a graduate program. The curriculum is designed as a “+2” degree allowing students to transfer 50 credits of their professional coursework.

In addition to the professional coursework required in the Bachelor of Science in Allied Health, you will be required to complete the general education requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree at the university, the College Health Professions core courses and additional upper level coursework from Ferris State University. The curriculum has been designed to allow you to pursue different avenues during your degree completion: a certificate in gerontology; exposure to health care management; specialization in health care finance; or a specialization in personnel practices in health care.
