Health Sciences - Allied Health, Bachelor of Science

The Health Sciences program at Northern Arizona University prepares you for employment in hospitals, government health agencies, private industry, and nongovernmental organizations. Do you see yourself as a health educator or speech-language pathology assistant? Are you a practicing allied health professional, such as diagnostic imaging technician or respiratory care assistant? Our programs will give you an avenue to success.

Flexibility is a hallmark of this degree, which offers online coursework and accepts a significant block of transfer credit if you are completing or have completed appropriate community college (or university) allied health programs.
