Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences in Clinical Health Sciences

Our online bachelor's in Clinical Health Sciences (CHS) offers active-duty Navy Independent Duty Corpsmen (IDCs), Army Special Forces Medical Sergeants (18Ds) and Air Force Independent Medical Technicians (IDMTs) a way to formalize their specialized military training with a degree from the George Washington University.

There are limited educational opportunities leading to a degree that will provide IDCs, 18Ds, and IDMTs the opportunity to enhance their skills, obtain the credentials to pursue advanced study and be eligible for promotion within the military. Our online bachelor's program in CHS fills that void by building on the strengths of your specialized military training and provides a combination of opportunities to fulfill requirements for a bachelor’s degree.

Our program enables you to gain access to top resources and experts, both at GW and within the nation’s capital. Students from the three approved military occupations are awarded up to 60 academic credits towards the degree. We have generous transfer policies and a special military discount on tuition for active-duty military personnel.

As a graduate of our program, you will be prepared to continue your education in graduate or professional programs in such fields as physician assistant, public health, and health services administration. Please note that most PA programs require additional science courses not required in our program.
