Department of Allied Health Professions

 Welcome to the CBU Department of Allied Health Professions. The faculty are pleased that you are considering a degree in one of the allied health professions: Bachelor degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders, or a graduate degree in Athletic Training or Speech Language Pathology.  Future programs in Physical Therapist Assistant and Radiological Sciences are also on the horizon. Our degree programs empower students to live their purpose as allied health professionals while studying in a nurturing faith-based environment.

The Department of Allied Health Professions is a multidisciplinary department dedicated to preparing students to contribute to a global society and a diverse workforce through academic and clinical training of allied health professionals. This is accomplished by providing allied health professions students with the knowledge and skills basic to the practice of their disciplines from a Christian worldview, instilling them with the fundamental attitudes of professionalism, and enabling them to function in inter-professional collaboration that emphasizes whole person care.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact myself or any of our professors so that we may help direct you toward the fulfillment of your goals.
