Scientific Source. Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology (OSUIT) is offering a new Associate in Science degree in Allied Health Sciences. It will provide the first two years of general education courses and science courses that will later transfer to a four-year university offering a bachelor's degree in a health care field.
Dr. Mark Allen, OSUIT's Arts & Sciences Division chair, says the degree program was developed in response to the need for more skilled workers in health care fields.
OSUIT's A.S. degree in Allied Health Sciences places a heavy emphasis on science classes and includes the core courses for the following majors: pre-nutritional sciences; pre-nuclear medicine; pre-radiation therapy; pre-radiography; pre-sonography; pre-physical and occupational therapy; pre-communication sciences and disorders.
Allied Health Sciences.
Graduates from OSUIT's degree program can transfer seamlessly to The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Tulsa or to other Oklahoma universities to work on a bachelor's degree in order to go into an Allied Health Sciences career field.
