GCC 2013-14 Academic Catalog
Health Science (lah) Liberal Arts Option
Provides a foundation in the liberal arts with an emphasis on preparation for continued study in the health science field. The program includes an exploration of health careers, as well as basic science courses necessary for many health occupation programs.
Your next step
Transfer to a Baccalaureate program related to health science, or a certificate or associate degree health occupation program such as clinical laboratory science or radiologic technology.
The Health Science option is one focused way to complete the Liberal Arts degree at GCC. By taking courses listed in this specific option, students complete courses that will help develop 100 and 200 course level knowledge and skills in a particular field. Students are advised to work closely with their GCC advisor to select the specific courses that will help meet their specific career or transfer goals. (Note: Students who complete this option will graduate with a diploma that reads "Associate in Arts in Liberal Arts.")
Please note that transfer to many four year colleges and universities will require the completion of four semesters of World Languages. Four sequential semesters of World Language classes from GCC will fulfill any UMass-Amherst language requirement.
