As a community leader, we believe the residents of Anne Arundel County and beyond deserve the best care from highly trained health professionals.

That’s why our goal each year is to help meet the continual need for competent and compassionate providers through high-quality, affordable programs taught by experienced professionals who are experts in their respective disciplines. If you think this fast-growing field is right for you, the School of Health Sciences is your home to a wide range of health-related degrees and certificates that can prepare you for a career or transfer to a four-year college and beyond. Each of AACC’s health programs will help you develop skills needed for a high-demand job within our county and region. You’ll benefit from hands-on learning using state-of-the-art equipment, such as the simulation lab, and through clinical rotations with our many partners throughout the county.
