Health Sciences

The Health Sciences Department offers a wide variety of health programs to help meet your personal and professional goals. Our programs offer both degree and certificate options, as well as non-credit course offerings.

We offer programs that prepare students to enter the workforce upon their completion, and transfer programs designed for students to articulate with various colleges and universities. Currently, Health Sciences graduates enter the job market with numerous employment opportunities.

Students should expect classroom environments that foster problem solving development, use state-of-the-art technology and equipment, and provide hands-on application. The program links below offer greater descriptions of the Health Sciences programs offered at FCC.
