Health Sciences

The Health Sciences Program is an on-line Bachelor of Sciences degree that prepares the student to enter management and leadership positions within healthcare organizations. The B.S. HS is an educational program designed to provide graduates of first-professional degree programs with enhanced knowledge and competencies necessary to meet their professional goals along with current and future expectations for their clinical practice. The B.S. HS aims to advance the skillset of the practicing clinician so that the graduate of the post-professional program can assume either additional roles or responsibilities within the profession. Examples are Certified Radiology Technologists, Registered Respiratory Therapists and Paramedics.

BSHS Students are eligible for the same financial aid and university resources as any TTUHSC student. Some fees are waived due to the distance education aspect of this program so tuition and fees are less than many other traditional programs. Out-of-state students pay a distance learning fee and do not pay out-of-state tuition as outlined in the TTUHSC catalog.

Students may transfer up to 90 hours of approved community college or university credits into the program (42 hours required Common Core credits and 48 hours of approved Technical Credits) and complete the remaining 30 credits through TTUHSC. Applications are accepted every semester. All BSHS courses are offered on-line and are structured on the Fall, Spring and Summer semester system.

Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science Health Sciences program are required to complete a final capstone discipline specific program courses. Exceptions to this policy may be considered by the Program's Director on a case by case basis.
