Four new majors offered for individuals holding associate’s degree in Allied Health fields

Muskingum University is offering four new majors – community health, health science, health studies and healthcare management – for individuals holding associate’s degrees in allied health fields.   Completion of the program will lead to a bachelor of science degree.

The new program is designed for working and busy health professionals, with courses offered in flexible formats (including online, daytime and evening and in 1-week, 5-week and 10 –week sessions). Classes will be offered every term and students may begin the program and register for classes in any one of three terms – fall, spring or summer.

"We added these new majors to provide an opportunity for students to continue their education and to earn degrees that can help advance their careers in the healthcare industry, which continues to grow both regionally and nationally,” said Cindy Wilkins, Ph.D., R.N., assistant dean of Graduate and Continuing Studies at Muskingum University. 

"The coursework within each major will build on the student’s previous academic and professional experience by providing a broader and deeper understanding of the healthcare industry and by enhancing that individual’s scientific and clinical knowledge,”  Wilkins added.

In addition, the program prepares graduates for advanced professional training and graduate education in healthcare professions such as physical therapy, occupational therapy and healthcare management.
