Health Studies is a broad-based degree about healthcare and the healthcare system. The program at YCCC is primarily intended to be a transfer degree in preparation for a specialized health associate degree or studies at the baccalaureate level.
 
For those looking to enter directly into the workforce, some careers may require additional licensing or certification, but a strong background in health studies will help provide a competitive edge in the job market.
 
Examples of entry-level job titles:
Health Care Administrative Assistant; Health Promotion Specialist; Medical Clerk
