Program Code: DE.30576

A dual associate degree is available in the Health Fitness Specialist and Physical Therapist Assistant Programs. Generally the requirements are completed simultaneously; however, the Health Fitness Specialist courses normally will be completed prior to beginning your Physical Therapist Assistant clinical sequence. Your diploma will list both Associate in Applied Science Degrees.


You will need to earn the required number of credits for your Associate in Applied Science Degree plus 24 credits from the courses below for the Associate in Applied Science Degree Health Fitness Specialist Dual Degree.


If you have earned a degree previously, you may not use courses from that degree to satisfy the requirements of a Dual Degree. It is possible that your previous degree may have included one or more of the required Health Fitness Specialist courses. You do not have to retake such classes, but must replace them from the list of approved Health Fitness Specialist courses under the dual degree to complete the additional 24 credits by instruction at Delta College.
