SAHP Program Descriptions


The degree programs presently operational in the School of Allied Health Professions and those planned for future development represents a blend of basic, clinical and social science. All degree programs are structured to present the basic principles, concepts and philosophies of the field of specialization, yet are flexible to allow for individual student capabilities and interests. The general goal of the School is to provide the student with the educational opportunities to develop as a professionally competent health practitioner and teacher. To the extent possible, common learning experiences will be provided for all students registered in the School of Health Professions with students in the other five professional schools of the Health Sciences Center. It is anticipated that such an approach will improve the eventual working relationships within the health field as well as the delivery of health services.

The pre-professional courses of the various curricula are completed on the undergraduate campuses of the LSU System or at other accredited colleges and universities. Those students planning to transfer from colleges and universities outside the LSU System should consult with the head of the department or an appropriately designated representative of the School of Allied Health Professions concerning the pre-professional requirements. This should be accomplished early in the student’s pre-professional education period.
