Associate Degree in Biomedical Sciences

Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) Code: 51.1199

This curriculum is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in the health professions, to matriculate into the Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences program or to matriculate into more advanced clinical programs. The clinical science, liberal arts, and basic health requirements provide the student with a strong foundation to continue advanced studies that can lead to becoming an allied healthcare provider.

Students interested in the Pre-Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) Track should meet with their program advisor early on in their academic career.

What is the Biomedical Sciences Career Outlook?

Employment of health care occupations is projected to grow 18 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations, adding about 2.3 million new jobs.* Health care occupations will add more jobs than any other group of occupations. This growth is expected due to an aging population and because federal health insurance reform should increase the number of individuals who have access to health insurance.


What Can I Do with This Degree?

An Associate in Science in Biomedical Sciences provides a solid background for entry-level positions and future studies in the fields of allied health or biological sciences. The program also provides an interdisciplinary introduction to science and healthcare.

What Will I Learn?

A student with no previous degree or transfer credits who attends full time, 12 semester hour credits per term or typically three courses per term, can complete this program in approximately two years.

Prior coursework will be evaluated to determine placement in certain courses.

The Pre-PTA Track is for students who need to complete all prerequisites for application to the Physical Therapist Assistant program at Hodges University. In order to graduate with an Associate in Science in Biomedical Sciences, you must complete the Basic Health Track.

Science courses for transfer into the Biomedical Science program must be taken within the past five (5) years with a grade of B or better.

How is Hodges University’s Biomedical Sciences Program Different?

Class Size and Convenient Schedules

Both day and evening courses are available with small class sizes. Science courses will have no more than 15 students per class. Face-to-face courses only meet once per week.

Hands-On Instruction

We teach in an environment that allows for practical, hands-on instruction. Instructional technology in our classrooms is far above what state schools can offer, and most science courses are taught by full-time faculty.
