APU’s allied health major provides students with a scientific foundation for future endeavors. The degree is tailored to students who wish to go directly into physical therapy, physician assistant, or other graduate-level allied health programs.
Students can choose this as an alternate major to biology within applied sciences if they desire a career in health care. They will get a similar background as a sports physiology major at other institutions, including hands-on anatomy experience within a human cadaver lab.
