This program is designed to provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge to begin or advance their careers in the health sciences field. Concentrations in allied health science, biomedical science, biotechnology, medical imaging science, and veterinary nursing will prepare graduates for employment in public, private, and non-profit sectors.
The program prerequisites will include a minimum earned Associate in Science degree or an earned Associate in Arts degree from a regionally accredited institution. Check for additional requirements for each specialization.
All BAS degrees require completion of Florida's standard baccalaureate degree requirements (36 hours of General Education, demonstration of foreign language competence, and demonstration of civic literacy). Contact BAS advising at BAS@easternflorida.edu for more information.
For A.S. degree students: Most A.S. degrees include a minimum of 15 credits in general education. Therefore, once admitted to the BAS program, A.S. students who have not completed required general education requirements will need to continue to take general education credit hours. Students must work with BAS advising to review the general education requirements.
For A.A. degree students: Once admitted to the BAS program, A.A. students will need to take technical concentration courses. Students must work with BAS advising for proper technical course selection.
Note: Successfully complete the Florida foreign language requirement; see "Foreign Language Requirement" in the Associate in Arts section. Foreign language taken at the college level does not satisfy the General Education or Technical Concentration credits.
Note: Pursuant to Section 1007.25, F.S., beginning with students initially entering a Florida College System institution or state university in the 2018-2019 school year and thereafter, each student must demonstrate competency in civic literacy.
