The School of Health & Behavioral Sciences offers a variety of programs for students to choose from.  All of our programs are designed to give the student the best learning experience possible.  Our graduates can leave with confidence knowing that they have gained the knowledge necessary to be successful in any Health & Behavioral Sciences career they have chosen.

Before entering Allied Health programs such as Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Respiratory Care Therapy, and Certified Occupational Therapy students are required to take a course in Biology, Chemistry, and Algebra passed with a grade C or higher.  The Radiologic Technology program requires students to take a course in Biology, Chemistry, Algebra, and Physics (or Physical Science in high school) passed with a grade of C or higher.  It is highly recommended for high school students, who are interested in an Allied Health field, to take these courses in high school.  If a student does not take these courses in high school, they will be required to take them at the college level. 

NOTE:  Some programs require other college courses before applying to the program.
