The degree is designed to prepare students to enter the allied health workplace with strong knowledge and skills in college-level math, science, social science and humanities. Degree completers are also eligible to enter related BAS programs at Bellevue College or other system colleges. The degree is designed to provide vertical mobility to individuals with professional certificates in Allied Health disciplines or to provide skills to individuals who have general education credits but no professional training.
