UConn to Add Bachelor’s Program in Allied Health Sciences at Waterbury Campus

UConn is developing the major with on-site and online classes, expanding some existing core science requirements to both semesters, and adding several core and elective classes that focus on specifics of allied health.

Students will be able to either complete the bachelor’s degree program at UConn Waterbury from their freshman year all the way through to graduation, or transfer in as a junior after earning an associate’s degree in the field at another institution, such as the highly regarded Naugatuck Valley Community College program nearby.

With their degrees in hand, the graduates will be prepared either to continue into graduate programs such as medical, dental, or optometry school, or to move directly into the workforce in careers where skilled workers are in demand and starting salaries are often higher than in many other professions.
