Cardiopulmonary Science

Concentration in Cardiopulmonary Science

The Bachelor of Science Completion Program in Allied Health with a concentration in Cardiopulmonary Science is designed to offer students with Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees in Cardiopulmonary Science the opportunity to obtain a baccalaureate degree by using more of their A.A.S. hours than normally transfer to a four-year institution.

Traditionally, A.A.S. graduates find that many of their allied health credit hours do not transfer to a four-year institution. This concentration allows A.A.S. graduates the opportunity to receive undergraduate credit for allied health professional courses completed at a community college.

This concentration will build upon their existing knowledge to enhance their skills in communications, critical thinking, problem solving, research and leadership theories.

In addition, the concentration will equip graduates with entry-level management, group dynamics, and supervisory skills as they relate to the allied health disciplines. Successful completion of the concentration will increase the mobility of graduates into leadership positions in their respective professions.
