Why Health Studies at TWU?
TWU’s program is unique. Unlike some other universities, we accept 36 of the technical course hours taken during your associate's program and apply them directly to your bachelor’s degree program. That saves you time and money as you work to complete your degree. Additional transfer credits may be accepted, depending on the community college you attended to earn your associate’s degree.
Our online program also gives you the flexibility and convenience to continue to work your full-time job while taking courses as your schedule allows.
This program requires 120 hours. Thirty-six of these hours are covered by the technology courses taken as part of your Associate in Applied Science degree. In this bachelor’s degree program, you will take 21 hours of health studies courses and 15 hours of business classes. Full program requirements are listed in the Undergraduate Catalog.
There is no minor or internship requirement with the B.A.S. As a full-time student, you can complete the coursework for this degree within two years, depending on which transfer credits are accepted from your completed associate’s degree program.
When you apply to TWU, we will evaluate your academic achievement and preparation, as well as your standardized test scores. Admission to TWU is valid for four terms, unless you have attended another higher education institution.
