New Allied Health Concentration

The Educational Policy Committee (EPC) has approved the addition of the Allied Health Concentration in place of the Health Sciences Concentration starting the Fall 2016 semester. The Allied Health name more accurately describes the concentration's true focus. The 2016-2017 Undergraduate Course Catalog will reflect these changes and our website already reflects the change. Please contact Prof. Ray McCoy, [[rwmcco]], Prof. Evie Burnet, [[enburnet]], or Prof. Ashleigh Queen, [[aeeverhardt]] for further information. Students who would like to switch concentrations may re-declare.
