Bachelor of Science in Health Science - Post PTA Degree
The Bachelor of Science in Health Science (Post PTA Degree) program at South College is committed to advancing educational opportunities for those students who have completed an associate level PTA degree. Currently, there are few opportunities nation-wide for students who have earned the PTA degree to have their major curriculum credits earned in a PTA program count toward a bachelor’s degree. Particularly with the state of our economy, this program will save both time and money for those students who desire to continue and earn a bachelor’s degree. Students may desire to earn a bachelor’s degree in order to enhance their marketability for administrative positions in physical therapy or health care environments or to continue after earning the bachelor’s to a Doctorate of Physical Therapy program. The bachelor’s degree is a requirement for admission to these programs.
This program is available only to those individuals who have earned an associate level degree in Physical Therapist Assistant. The curriculum provides a balance of theoretical and practical coursework that further develops the critical thinking and analytical skills needed in today’s competitive and evolving work environments. Students will be challenged through coursework in various disciplines including science, mathematics, psychology, business, health science, and sociology.
