Two new degrees for adult learners

July 16, 2014

 Saint Francis University's Adult Degree & Continuing Studies (ADCS) program is offering two new degrees that will begin with the fall 2014 semester. The bachelor of science in health studies and the bachelor of science in behavioral science degrees will be offered online, with on-site classroom learning available.

The bachelor of science in health studies degree will prepare students for employment and training in the health care industry. Students will gain essential knowledge in biology, chemistry, and medical terminology to build a strong foundation for healthcare careers.

Those who choose to pursue the bachelor of science in behavioral science degree will learn about taking a human approach to solving social and mental health issues that exist in our communities. Graduates of this program will work to improve their clients’ mental and emotional well-being, help manage cases, and provide rehabilitative services.

Both programs offer generous transfer of credits, customized curriculum, and accelerated degree options. Discounted courses, financial aid, and tuition deferment is available.
