Are you considering a career in medicine or a related field? At Hesston College, you will receive the personal attention and solid academic preparation that will take you where you want to go.

How will Hesston College prepare me for future studies?

Hesston College offers an associate of science degree, a degree program that ensures ease of transfer into the four-year college or university of your choice. The associate of science degree is especially designed to fulfill the primary sequence of courses required for subsequent upper-level pre-medicine courses.

In addition, you will complete a range of liberal arts courses, course work that provides a broadly based educational foundation. The liberal arts courses are similar to and meet most introductory general education courses at four-year institutions. After two years, you will have completed at least 60 college credit hours to earn the associate of science degree.

The medical profession is grounded in science and can appear cold to those who are ill. The small classes, close attention and caring attitude of the professors during my early academics at Hesston College has helped me focus on the ill person instead of merely the illness.”
          –Chris Alliman, M.D., Hesston College Class of 1995
