The major in Allied Health at Queens University of Charlotte prepares students for a variety of graduate study options and careers in related health areas. Allied Health professions are support professions (distinct from nursing) that work together to assist in the delivery of health services and make the health care system function.
This undergraduate program emphasizes a comprehensive foundation in the physical sciences to also assist students seeking careers in physical therapy, occupational therapy, cardiac and/or exercise rehabilitation, or other associated health occupations.
Allied Health graduates may seek leadership positions in communication, education, or research. Allied Health graduates may continue to graduate school in areas such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant, or the exercise sciences.
