Not Sure Which Health Sciences Program Is Right for You?
A good place to start is to ask yourself what aspects of healthcare interest you most and the type of allied health professional you'd like to become. If you want to work directly with patients, you may be interested in Health Sciences courses to build skills for a Medical Assisting, Medical Lab Technician, Pharmacy Technician, Physical Therapist Assistant, Radiologic Technology or Surgical Technologist role.
Or, if you are interested in working indirectly with patients, but still want to help improve patient care, you can pursue a degree in Health Information Management, Health Information Technician, Health Sciences, Medical Administrative Assistant and Medical Billing and Coding. If you’ve always been interested in social wellness, our Human Services and Health and Wellness programs may be a great fit for you.
The healthcare industry is one of today’s fastest-growing and changing industries. This combination of growth and change has helped to cause a surge in demand for healthcare degrees and professionals. At Rasmussen College, our School of Health Sciences offers a range of Health Sciences degree programs to help you start or advance your healthcare career.

- Savings calculated from students enrolled at Rasmussen College who utilized Flex Choice® Credit by Assessment, which were offered for no additional charge when taken concurrently with traditional courses from May 2014 to January 2018. When completed, assessments reduced the number of traditional courses students were required to complete as part of their program. From the launch of Flex Choice Credit by Assessment in May 2014 through January 2018, 8,297 courses have been completed. Calculation: 8,297 courses x 3.2 credits per course = 26,550 credits. Cost per credit $250 x 26,550 credits = $6,637,500 in savings in the last four years. Since January 2017, we’ve been charging $99 per attempt 10,280 attempts since January 2017 x $99 = $1,017,720 in revenue. $6,637,500 savings - $1,017,720 revenue = $5,619,780 saved.
