New Degree Program: B.A. in Allied Health Studies

Posted on: December 17th, 2018 by yabarnes

Bachelor of Arts in Allied Health Studies

The Bachelor of Arts in Allied Health Studies is designed to help students who are pursuing a career in various health professional fields.  This interdisciplinary degree program allows students to combine different courses from various majors to help prepare them for their professional school of choice.  The Liberal Arts core curriculum allows students to be exposed to a  broad learning in multiple disciplines which empowers them to deal with complexity, diversity, and change in the greater world.

Why Choose Allied Health?

The Allied Health Degree was designed with health professions students in mind.  This degree allows our students the flexibility to obtain prerequisites for the vast amount of health professions programs in the country, while also working toward a four year degree.  Students will gain a liberal arts foundation, while also having the ability to mix and match classes based on their health professions area(s) of interest. Students can additionally expand upon the knowledge most pertinent to their chosen health profession career and interest areas by choosing relevant upper-level courses accordingly.  Pre-Nursing students pursuing the Accelerated Nursing (4+1) track may especially find the Allied Health studies degree to be a great option.

Ole Miss Pre-Med Student Launches Medical American Sign Language Website

Posted on: September 6th, 2017 by yabarnes


Ashley Barker is currently a premedical senior at the University of Mississippi obtaining a B.S. in Biology with minors in Chemistry, Psychology, and Neuroscience. Most importantly she is hard of hearing. Being involved in the medical field as a hard of hearing premed allowed her to realize the separation of the hearing world and the deaf/hoh world, especially in medicine. She created this website for anyone that has a lack of knowledge of deaf/hoh community and to help individuals learn ASL; in hopes to better themselves as healthcare professionals. She truly believes EVERYONE should learn basic ASL. It is a necessity to combine our worlds.

Happy signing!
