YOUR PATH TO A BACHELOR'S DEGREE

These Connected Degree programs enable you to complete your associate degree and then transfer to a four-year degree program as a junior.

THE CONNECTED DEGREE 2 + 2 CURRICULUM

Delaware Tech's accredited associate degree program in Medical Assistant prepares graduates to work with other members of the health care team performing both clinical duties (assisting with patient care) and administrative duties (performing medical office tasks). Graduates may apply to take the certification exam given by the American Association of Medical Assistants. Successful candidates are Certified Medical Assistants (CMA), with employment opportunities in physicians' offices, hospitals, and other health care facilities. Wilmington University's bachelor's degree completion program in Allied Health is for Allied Health practitioners who have earned an associate degree with an Allied Health concentration. The program enables practitioners to transfer up to 75 credits from their initial education. The goal of the program is to provide expert practitioners in the Allied Health field with the knowledge and skill needed to teach the next generation of Allied Health practitioners or to advance in their careers with a focus in administration.
