The Associate of Technical Studies in Life and Health Sciences (LHS) degree consists of a minimum of 60 credit hours combining technical, general education, and LHS core courses. It is open to students whose technical degree goals cannot be accomplished through enrollment in one of Sinclair's existing Life and Health Sciences technical degree programs. The area of concentration can either be formed by 1) a coherent combination of technical courses drawn from two or more technical programs currently offered by the college to serve a career objective, or 2) courses completed or training received by a student at other institutions of higher education, career centers, or credit awarded through articulation agreements with community education providers. The program area(s) of concentration must be equivalent to a maximum of 30 semester hours and a clearly identifiable career objective. In all cases, faculty members assist the student in planning the most appropriate course of study for the individual. Interested students can request information by calling 937-512-2800 and ask to speak with a PLA Program Advisor. E-mail requests for information can be sent to email@example.com.
