Carroll University offers an opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences through a unique articulated partnership with Waukesha County Technical College (WCTC).

This major provides depth and breadth within the basic and behavioral sciences to prepare students for the balanced integration of critical thinking, basic science knowledge application, and interpersonal skills necessary to provide the best care in a variety of health science disciplines. To meet the educational missions of the university and of the health science major, students study in a variety of academic and professional disciplines including anatomy and physiology, psychology, chemistry, physics and computational thinking.

Students with a completed associate of applied science degree from WCTC in Dental Hygiene or Surgical Technology are eligible to apply these credits for advanced standing toward a bachelor degree at Carroll. This B.S. degree provides an avenue for professional growth and advancement within each profession.

The remaining required courses will vary based on each individual’s unique transcript, but will include the major core courses, Bachelor of Science requirements and elective credits. In order to graduate, students must earn a minimum of 128 credits, with the last 32 credits completed while enrolled at Carroll. One quarter of the major core courses must also be completed at Carroll.

Because students are transferring credits earned through an associate degree, the health science completion major is not to be used as a stand-alone major. Additional health related associate degrees from other technical colleges may also be considered for advanced standing. Please contact the Admissions Office for more information.
