Majors & Minors Offered
What can you do with this degree?Most of the growth that is occurring in health professions is happening in the allied health careers. Physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant and dietetics are examples of allied health careers that are consistently on the Bureau of Labor Statistics list of highly desirable professions that will enjoy good salaries and job security due to their role in the health care system and because demand outstrips supply. Minority students are especially needed in the allied health professions, as Blacks are underrepresented in almost every health profession. However, good academic preparation is vital to success. Therefore, the Allied Health curriculum and advisement are designed to maximize academic success and support the University’s mission to assist in the development of Christian character.Career choices for graduates from this department include: child life specialist, clinical laboratory scientist, dietician, family life specialist, hospital administrator, nutritionist, occupational therapist, physical therapist, physician assistant, preschool director and teacher, and speech language pathologist.
