Why study Health Science?

Ancilla’s Health Science program will provide you with a solid foundation in the health sciences. The curriculum is composed of courses in biological and physical sciences, which is complemented by Ancilla’s core of liberal arts subjects. In addition to classroom coursework, the program offers hands-on laboratory experience. Ancilla College strives to produce graduates who are broadly educated with the ability to make logical decisions, manage groups effectively and communicate well.

The demand for health care professionals is skyrocketing. The Associate of Science degree in Health Science prepares you to pursue a variety of educational opportunities in health fields such as nursing, dental hygiene, medical technology, radiography, occupational therapy, physical therapy, respiratory therapy, medical school or veterinary school.

The program will produce graduates who are broadly educated with the ability to utilize the scientific process, illustrate age-appropriate functions of the human body, and communicate well. The program will prepare a student to transfer to a senior institution for further study.
