Can I become a medical assistant with a bachelor's degree?


In rare circumstances it’s possible for current bachelor’s degree holders in unrelated fields to find work as a medical assistant without earning a medical assisting-specific education.

You will be better prepared to compete for jobs after you complete courses specific to medical assisting, earn a diploma or degree, and get certified. You may be able to transfer credit from prior college learning into our program—please contact our admissions department for more information.
