Online B.S. Completion in Health Sciences Curriculum

Our flexible program allows students to schedule courses around work and family obligations. Kettering College offers BSHS courses on a shortened schedule so that students can focus on fewer classes in accelerated sessions that can be completed in seven or eight-week increments. By offering courses in accelerated sessions, full-time students will be able to complete the entire program in just four semesters, including general education courses. Part-time students can earn their bachelor’s of science degree in eight semesters.

All courses are offered online and additional clinical hours are not required.

Courses from previous experience at regionally accredited college or universities may be transferred in to meet degree requirements.
