Students in the CCV Health Science A.S. program can pursue a UVM Health Sciences B.S. program.

Graduates of the program will be prepared by rigorous courses relevant to a variety of roles in health care. Depending on the electives or if a minor is chosen, students may pursue health-related interests in a variety of fields, including: health education, health communications, community health, corporate wellness, health care administration, health care data analysis, and health information technology. Graduates are also competitively positioned for advanced education in public health, health administration, health and biomedical sciences, the health professions, or medicine.
