Associate Health Technology



Ohio University Southern offers a two-year program of study in Health Technology leading to an Associate of Applied Science degree. This program is primarily designed for students who wish to or already have completed an allied health course of study and have been certified to practice in their fields.
The program integrates the students' technical skills with general academic skills necessary to advance in their chosen career areas. Up to 24 credit hours may be awarded for current certification in an allied health field. Other students may enter the program and pursue the associate's degree by completing additional allied health technical courses. Upon completion of this program, students are well positioned to pursue a baccalaureate degree with a major in Health Service Administration, Technical and Applied Studies, or Specialized Studies.
The minimum requirement for the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree is the completion of 64 credits with a 2.0 accumulative GPA upon graduation. You must earn at least 20 semester hours of resident credit at Ohio University. You also must meet Ohio University General Education requirements for associate degrees. (See Graduation Requirements - Universitywide section) To earn a technical associate's degree, you must complete an Application for Update of Program(s), available from any college office or regional campus student services office.
