100% Online Allied Health Degree Completion Programs Header Image

For students with an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in an Allied Health field, ETSU provides an online baccalaureate degree program that uses more A.A.S. hours than normally transfer to a four-year institution. 

This degree builds upon existing professional knowledge to enhance skills in communications, critical thinking, problem solving, research, and leadership theories, and allows A.A.S. graduates the opportunity to receive undergraduate credit for allied health professional courses completed at a community college.

In addition, the concentration equips 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 the graduate into leadership positions in their respective professions.
