Health Science Curriculum Requirements
Facts As precised by the School of health science Study Plan requirements, all health science programs are constituted from courses as follows:
University General Requirement Courses: All University Programs must fulfill those courses requirements offered externally to the school of healthsciences. They are designed to constitute an integrative aspect to the university so that a learner signs for the University and not only to an individual Program in a segregated perspective. Those courses are at the core of the liberal education perspective and are designed to equip the student with a 360 ̊ of perspective and competencies needed to breed a multi-intelligence posture.
Health Science Capstone Experience: In addition to completing the program's foundation courses and theoretical criteria, all health science learners must complete a Health Science Capstone Experience. You should complete the business foundation and core first. The Health Science Capstones are senior-level experiences that are writing and speaking intensive, provide for multiple skill development, and integrate the Fine Arts coursework you have already completed.
Diversity Requirement: You must complete at least one course that provides an understanding of diversity and general diversity perspectives.
Communication Requirement: All health science programs require at least one Communication art course requirement. Also, each major and emphasis incorporates communication across the curriculum so that writing and speaking skills are important characteristics of each and every program.
Theoretical Courses: Most of the health science Courses carry a theoretical perspective. This theory usually is validated by following primary references from leading acclaimed edition houses.
Practical Courses: All health science programs require at least two practical courses requirements. Also, each major and emphasis incorporates practicums across the curriculum so that practical skills are important characteristics of each and every course throughout the program.
Grade Point Average: A minimum 2.00 cumulative grade point average in health science courses is required for graduation.
Mathematics Requirement: All health science learners must complete one basic Math course or equivalent-such as applied statistics.
Residency Requirements: AUE programs are essentially full resident-based. All health science majors must complete at least 50 percent of the health science courses required for their health science degree at one of AUE’s campuses. Transfers are calculated based on these criteria.
Any degree in health science studies and all health science programs and emphases aims to equip the students for the dynamics of today’s global business world with more than necessary skills, ensuring their full congruence with the University and school’s Mission and the United Nation’s SDGs. Our commitment goes beyond sustainability to development.
