The Associate of Science in Health Sciences provides the students with a solid foundation in the sciences while providing the flexibility needed for them to choose classes based on their future goals. During their time at Esperanza College students take a series of Biology and Chemistry courses. Students learn about cells, tissues, atoms and molecules to understand larger concepts such as the functioning of the brain or how proteins fold. The program serves as a gateway for students to then continue on to a bachelor’s degree or even an advanced degree in the health field. For example, students may choose to pursue degrees in nursing, radiological science, biomedical science, physical therapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physician’s assistant, medicine and dentistry among others.
