The Department of Allied Health Sciences offers students with a variety of options to tailor their studies to their career goals. The Allied Health Sciences major is open to students from their freshman year onward, subject to admissions criteria. The faculty and staff advisors in our dedicated Advising Center help students make informed decisions about their education and health career goals.

Allied Health Sciences Major & Concentrations
The Allied Health Sciences major is available to incoming freshman and transfer students through UConn Admissions. Current UConn students in other majors can apply through a competitive admissions process. Majors start in the Standard Plan and can later declare from four concentrations if desired.
