Some five million allied health care providers in the United States work both independently and collaboratively with physicians, nurses, dentists, pharmacists and other professionals to meet the nation’s growing demand for quality health care.
Towson University partners with community colleges throughout the state to offer the bachelor of technical and professional studies in allied health (BTPS). If you are a community college graduate with an associate’s degree in an approved allied health discipline, this program can advance your education and your career. You can pursue your degree on campus or online — the program is Towson University’s only fully online undergraduate major.
