This area of concentration provides a foundation for students interested in a career in health sciences.

Students who take the courses recommended in the health focus area will be able to:

  1. use their broad liberal arts education with a concentration in one of the biological or physical sciences to further their career in health sciences.
  2. use higher-order thinking skills.
  3. meet the admissions requirements of the selected health science program.

Career Possibilities:

The health focus area graduate has two options:

  1. apply for admission to a health sciences program.
  2. transfer to a four-year institution in a health science area.

Preparation for IHCC:

Prospective students should have a strong interest in the health sciences.

Recommended Courses:

Students planning to transfer to an IHCC program or to a four-year institution are strongly advised to familiarize themselves with the selected program at the college to which they plan to transfer and work with a counselor and the health occupations faculty at IHCC to plan a program that meets those requirements. Applicants to these programs will find that they have a strong emphasis on the life and physical sciences. Most programs require biology and chemistry, and some require physics. These courses are often (but not always) completed at the nonmajors level.
