Classroom Based or Online Program

This degree completion program is for students that have an associate’s degree related to health care; for example: physical therapy assistant, clinical laboratory technician, pharmacy technician, dental hygienist, respiratory therapy, as well as others. This program will complement previous coursework and work experience, providing skills, knowledge and opportunity for leadership development to enhance their career. The program will also provide broad exposure to the liberal arts through Viterbo's core curriculum (literature, history, religious studies, and fine arts). The Health Care Science Major also requires additional course work beyond the health care core in the social sciences (psychology, sociology, addiction studies). This major is part of an interdisciplinary program with the Dahl School of Business that has a common core of courses that will assist future leaders in health care settings.

The health care science program offers:

  • a generous transfer credit policy for students with a health-related associate degree.
  • classes that begin six timers per year: August, October, January, March, May and July.
  • personalized advising and support services.
  • flexibility, wth all classes available in the evenings or online.
