Northland's Health Sciences Broad Field Associate of Science program prepares students for transfer to a variety of health and human service related baccalaureate degree programs. Examples include, but are not limited to nursing, social work, nutrition, corrections, health education, and exercise science. This program positions a student for pursuit of these and other high demand health and human service careers.
The curriculum includes instruction in the basic sciences and aspects of the subject matter related to various health occupations. Students completing the Health Sciences Broad Field Associate of Science degree can take advantage of several statewide articulation agreements with Minnesota State Universities and should work with an advisor in identifying these opportunities. In addition, if a student were to decide prior to their final semester of enrollment that an Associate of Arts degree would better fit their transfer needs, they may be able to complete this degree by making minor changes to their curriculum.
