The curriculum includes natural sciences, such as biology, chemistry and physics, as well as advanced courses in health sciences. Students are encouraged to earn a grade of “B” or better in all required professional school’s pre-requisite courses.

Pre-Athletic Training Concentration (AHPA) is designed to prepare students seeking admission to a post-baccalaureate athletic training program of study.

Communicative Disorders Concentration (AHCD) is composed of course work for students intending to pursue graduate programs in Speech Language Pathology or Audiology.
