The Liberal Arts Health Science Concentration Curriculum  provides pathways to over 50 different degrees in these careers and more.

The Associate in Arts, Liberal Arts Degree, with Concentration in Health Science serves as a foundation degree for those students interested in pursuing a career within the healthcare profession. The program provides a student with a foundation in the liberal arts with a focus on Life Sciences and an emphasis on preparation for continued study in a health science field. 

In addition to our current degree and certificate options, LRCC is collaborating with Lakes Region General Healthcare to offer students the oportunity to earn an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts with Concentration in Health Science.

This new degree will position you to transfer to a four or six year program of professional study. With this degree, you will have a foundation in the liberal arts and a focus on LIfe Science.

A student pursuing the Liberal Arts Degree with Concentration in Health Science is required to take a greater number of science classes compared to a student in the Liberal Arts Degree program. However, there is still great flexibility in selecting courses within the program. Thus we encourage each student to routinely meet with their program advisor so as to match their course selections to their goals, with this planning being especially important for course transfer into four-year degree programs.
