With the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projecting that careers in health care will grow at twice the pace for overall U.S. job growth (by more than 20 percent from 2008 through 2018) a bachelor’s degree in allied health studies is a smart choice. Graduates can qualify for entry-level employment in the health care industry as pharmaceutical reps, medical recruiters, medical device salespeople, public health workers, patient advocates, case workers and more! The program in Allied Health Studies builds on a strong base of general education courses and includes in-depth perspectives in health and health care delivery. Studies gain an understanding of health issues and public health trends. Students learn to utilize management, organizational and communication skills in health care positions and interpret health care and disease related research and use this information to change and improve health care.
