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 Physical Therapist Assistant prepares students to become licensed health care workers who provide physical therapy services under the supervision and direction of the physical therapist. Students study both on campus and at varied clinical sites in preparation to work directly with patients in need of therapeutic exercises to regain motion and strength after illness or injury. Graduates of the program may be employed by hospitals, rehabilitation centers, private practice clinics, home health agencies, as well as other health care organizations. 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.
