Milligan University student in sciences and allied health lab.

The allied health science curriculum is designed for the student planning to pursue a career in pharmacy or optometry. The allied health science degree is only awarded to those students who complete 100 hours in the major and then transfer back 28 hours of pharmacy or optometry school course work.

Through special partnership agreements with ETSU, Mercer, and Union universities, and the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, students can complete three years at Milligan and four years at a pharmacy or optometry school to earn both a bachelor’s and doctorate degree in as few as seven years. They also can receive a guaranteed interview at these schools by meeting conditions of the specific agreements.
