IU East to Offer Applied Health Science Degree

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND -

Indiana University East has announced plans to offer a new Applied Health Science degree this fall. The bachelor's degree program will offer two tracks in community health education and health administration.

The university says the program is designed to "enhance potential for career advancement in entry-level and mid-level positions in health-related organizations." Students in the 120-credit-hour program will take courses related to healthcare delivery and leadership, health communication, policy and ethics.

"By combining the expertise of our faculty in healthcare delivery and leadership with our expertise in online degree delivery, we will provide a pathway for students looking to advance their careers in healthcare to meet the growing demand in our region and across the state for nonclinical healthcare specialists," said Michelle Malott, executive director for academic affairs at IU East. "We are also pleased that through a collaborative approach with other IU campuses, we will be able to offer students more flexibility in coursework to help them complete their degrees in a timely manner."

The program will offered in collaboration with Indiana University Online, IU Kokomo, IU Northwest, IU South Bend and IU Southeast. Participating students will be admitted to one campus, but will have the ability to learn from faculty throughout the IU network.
