Program Description

The Health Studies program at Arkansas State University serves a three-fold purpose for students that are:

  • Planning to seek employment in a health or health related area upon graduation;
  • Desiring a bachelor’s degree following an associate’s degree in health disciplines and
  • Planning a health career that requires a post-baccalaureate plan of study.

This degree does not lead to a professional credential or state licensure.
