The Allied Health major at Otterbein University has been designed to expose students to the wide variety of options for study and career opportunities in the health care arena. 


The Bachelor of Science in Allied Health at Otterbein University is a course of study that is designed to give students a background deeply rooted within the sciences. This degree is best suited to prepare students for entry into graduate schools in physical therapy, occupational therapy and physician assisting and contains coursework to meet the prerequisites of most graduate programs in health-related fields. As such, the BS in Allied Health includes the coursework that is required as pre-requisite coursework for these graduate fields of study.

The Bachelor of Arts degree in Allied Health allows students greater flexibility within their schedule to explore other areas of graduate study or career paths that do not require such a strict science curriculum. Potential paths beyond the undergraduate career for students completing the BA in Allied Health would be graduate study in the areas of nutrition and dietetics, applied behavioral analysis, exercise science, or recreational therapy, just to name a few.
