Bachelor of Science

A major in Health and Community Services at AMC is designed to engage students interested in working in the health field in non-clinical roles. With the rapid changes in the delivery of healthcare, graduates from the BS in Health and Community Service will be able to work as an important member of a healthcare team to guide patients through a variety of complex systems such a health plan, hospitals and ambulatory care organizations, health and human services, public health programs and medical practice offices. The BS in Health and Community Service will also provide students with an educational background to pursue graduate studies in health care, public administration, and social service fields. Consistent with our mission, this major has a focus on social justice and our overall underlying goal of educating the whole person.

Students completing the Bachelor of Science in Health and Community Services will be able to:
  • Relate the foundations of scientific knowledge including biological and life sciences to the concepts of health and illness
  • Demonstrate effective navigation and advocacy skills that ensure medical and health needs are met to improve patient clinical outcomes, and access to care
  • Demonstrate effective use of confident communication and sensitivity skills
  • Demonstrate effective teamwork, problem-solving and adaptability skills

 

Once graduated, these students will have the capacity to work in a variety of professional health care settings such as health plans, primary care, long-term care, adult daycare, and specialty agency services. It is intended that this major become a stepping stone to other majors such as nursing, health and human services, or the social sciences.
