College offers dual degree options for students

New program expands healthcare career opportunities for students earning associate degrees

 At the start of Fall Quarter, Seattle Central created a way for students to earn two degrees during the timespan it takes to earn one. With the dual degree option, students have the opportunity to earn an academic transfer degree, while also launching a pathway toward a healthcare career.

The dual degrees were designed primarily to provide guided pathways for students who are interested in healthcare careers but may be undecided about their career choices and/or bachelor’s degree choices. The goal is to provide guided pathways that give students the most flexibility/options possible.

Dual degree options include:

  • AA-DTA in Global Health and AAS-T in Allied Health
  • AA-DTA in Equity and Social Justice and AAS-T in Allied Health
  • AA-DTA and AAS-T in Allied Health: Generalist
  • AA-DTA and AAS-T in Allied Health: Pre-Physician Assistant Preparation

Some benefits to earning a dual degree include:

  • Save time and money by taking only the classes you need
  • Build a solid foundation for BA, BS or BAS degrees
  • Transfer your dual degree directly to a Seattle Central Bachelor of Applied Science program in Community Health and Education, including the pre-Physician Assistant option, or Healthcare Services Management
  • Have lots of job choices when you start looking for work
