Pre-Health Care Studies-TC

The Associate of Science in Health Sciences degree is a 60 semester hour program designed for students with specific occupational or transfer needs. It has a general education core made up of the 35-hour state minimum core requirements. Compared to the associate of arts, it allows students a wider choice of elective courses to meet requirements for many specialized health science baccalaureate degrees. Students who know where they will transfer and what their major will be should work with their ASU-Beebe advisors to select electives that will maximize transferability. Technical certificates are available for those students who desire preparation for more immediate entry into the workforce.
