(This program is the first two years of a four-year allied health degree that must be completed at a senior institution. One cannot work in this field without completing a four-year degree.)
Area Credit hours
A - E Core Curriculum (a, b, c) 42-44 hours
F Courses appropriate to the Program of Study 18 hours
Required courses:Carry over from MATH course in Area A and/or Lab courses in Area D (a, b) 2 hours
BIOL 1611 and BIOL 1611L (c) Human Anatomy and Physiology I and Lab 4 hours
BIOL 1612 and BIOL 1612L Human Anatomy and Physiology II and Lab 4 hours
Choose 8 hours from the following courses:PHYS 1111 and PHYS 1111L (d) Introductory Physics I and Lab 4 hours
PHYS 1112 and PHYS 1112L Introductory Physics II and Lab 4 hours
CHEM 1211 and CHEM 1211L Principles of Chemistry I and Lab 4 hours
CHEM 1212 and CHEM 1212L Principles of Chemistry II and Lab 4 hours
Additional Requirements 2-4 hours
NOTES:(a) Students who take MATH 2431 in Area A and MATH 2432 in Area D will carry over 1 hour from Area A and 1 hour from Area D to Area F and may take 4 hours in Area B. Students who take MATH 1113 in Area A or MATH 1431 in Area D must take 6 hours in Area B and will carry over 2 hours from Area D to Area F.
(b) MATH 2431 should be taken in Area D, if not taken in Area A.
(c) CHEM 1211 & 1211L and CHEM 1212 & CHEM 1212L should be taken in Area D since CHEM 1211, CHEM 1211L, CHEM 1212, and CHEM 1212L are prerequisites for BIOL 1611 and BIOL 1611L in Area F.
(d) Physics and chemistry are required. If the physics is taken in Area D, the calculus based physics is required. If the physics is taken in Area F, the algebra/trig based physics may be taken.
Special Note: MATH 1431 and CSCI 1301 are courses that are helpful to students when they transfer to Georgia Regents University. If students have time to take these courses at GPC, they are encouraged to do so.
Special Note: In the past, this program of study included concentrations in nuclear medicine, radiation therapy, and diagnostic sonography. However, Georgia Regents University has deactivated their BS program in diagnostic medical sonography to which the AS degree articulated. Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Therpay continue to articulate with Georgia Regents University.
