Department of Health Professions
The curriculum for each of these majors is designed to blend liberal arts and professional education. In addition, the design of the professional curriculum is based on prerequisite education in the basic sciences and a conceptual core of knowledge in the health sciences.
Admission to Health Professions Programs
Admission to each program takes place at the freshman, upper sophomore or lower junior level. Acceptance is based on matriculation at York College, completion of a minimum number of credits, specific prerequisite coursework and attainment of a minimum grade point average, and approval of the discipline Admissions Committee (see each discipline for details). Applicants are not considered “accepted” until they receive a letter from the respective department stating acceptance in a particular program.
Each of the programs of study at York includes a prescribed sequence of courses at the college and may include a prescribed period of clinical fieldwork. Refer to specific discipline for further information.
