The Allied Health Leadership (AHLD) concentration is designed to offer students with Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees in allied health fields the opportunity to obtain a baccalaureate degree by using more of their A.A.S. hours than normally transfer to a four-year institution.
Traditionally, A.A.S. graduates find that many of their allied health credit hours do not transfer to a four-year institution. This concentration allows A.A.S. graduates the opportunity to receive undergraduate credit for allied health professional courses completed at a community college.
This concentration will build upon their existing knowledge to enhance their skills in communications, critical thinking, problem solving, research and leadership theories.
In addition, the concentration will equip graduates with entry-level management, group dynamics, and supervisory skills as they relate to the allied health disciplines. Successful completion of the concentration will increase the mobility of graduates into leadership positions in their respective professions.
Students seeking admission to the Allied Health Leadership concentration must meet the following criteria:
1. College GPA of 2.5 or better on a 4.0 scale on all transferable credit;
2. Transcript(s)-proof of graduation from an accredited allied health
3. Eligibility for professional licensure in discipline.
Students interested in the B.S. Completion Program at ETSU should make an advisement appointment by calling (423) 547-4900. Periodic advising is strongly recommended.
Current tuition and fees are available on the Bursar's web site.
