CONCENTRATIONS  | 19-59 credits

In addition to satisfying the core requirements within the applied health sciences major, students must choose a concentration based on their area of interest and continuing education. In order to obtain a concentration, students must complete all the following required course work in addition to the above stated core courses. The courses outlined in the concentrations will satisfy most of the academic requirements necessary to gain acceptance into the relevant professional programs. However, students should work closely with their applied health sciences advisor to stay abreast of any changes that occur within these requirements as they can fluctuate during any application cycle. Ultimately, it is the students’ responsibility to ensure that they have satisfied the academic requirements for the specific schools and programs to which they wish to apply.
