The purposes of the Allied Health and Preprofessional Health Programs are:
- to provide a foundation in the liberal arts for students who plan careers in the health fields
- to satisfy the entrance requirements for professional schools, particularly those in Texas;
- to satisfy the requirements for graduation at East Texas Baptist University
- to fulfill the major requirements of those departments in which the majority of these pre-professional students major.
The Allied Health program is designed to provide preprofessional education for those persons pursuing a career as a medical technologist requiring a baccalaureate program.
