an important role as a member of the health care team in a variety of
medical settings. This program introduces students to anatomy and
physiology of the body systems, medical terminology, and required
clinical and administrative skills. The program also features hand-on
laboratory training for students. Employment is projected to grow 34
percent, much faster than average, ranking medical assistants among
the fastest growing occupations over the 2008-18 decade.

develop qualified paralegals to have a fundamental understanding of
the legal system to meet the growing needs of the legal field and gain
competence in assisting legal professionals in delivering quality
legal services. Employment of paralegals and legal assistants is
projected to grow 28 percent between 2008 and 2018, much faster than
