Health Science B.S.

Health Science - BS

The Health Science program is an interdisciplinary program designed to provide career advancement opportunities for entry level health profession practitioners as well as individuals that seek future careers in health care.  The program is also recommended for students who are interested in a health profession at the post-baccalaureate level, such as Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy. All of the upper division courses required to complete this program are available by web-based distance learning.

The program embraces different backgrounds and interests and is appropriate for individuals who wish to gain further interdisciplinary education.

Articulation agreements facilitate the transfer of students from associate degree programs at community colleges to baccalaureate degree programs at universities. Students admitted under articulation agreements enter FGCU with upper level status and are classified juniors. Students who have earned or are intending to earn an associate of arts or associate of science degree in an allied health care profession from State College of Florida Manatee-Sarasota or St. Petersburg College should contact the college for more information regarding the transfer process. Additional articulation agreements are under discussion.

This is a web-based distance learning program.
