  Allied Health Sciences

This is an Associate of Applied Sciences degree program in Allied Health Sciences that will provide a pathway for students who are currently enrolled in or have completed a Certificate level program in an Allied Health Sciences discipline from any TBR institution, or are currently credentialed as allied health/nursing practitioners who wish to continue their formal education and earn an Associate of Applied Sciences degree. Allied Health Sciences discipline-specific core credits may be earned by current enrollment in appropriate allied health sciences courses, or transferring credits earned in a health science-related program at a Tennessee Technology Center, or an allied health sciences certificate program from a community college, or portfolio assessment of college-level learning gained through employment related to an allied health discipline.

In addition to the 15 credit hours of General Education core courses currently required for an A.A. S. degree, students will complete a 3 credit hour course in Management and Leadership for Allied Health Supervisors (ALH 211). Two additional Allied Health courses (Contemporary Issues in Healthcare-ALH 212), and Special Topics in Healthcare Management-ALH 213) as well as general electives may be taken, depending on the number of credit hours earned from a allied health sciences certificate/diploma program, allied health science courses, or experiential portfolio evaluation.
