The professional component includes the necessary technical, scientific, business and/or support courses to provide the basis for immediate employment or advanced study in a professional area. Classroom theory is frequently supplemented by laboratory and workshop experiences where the interrelationship between general principles and application is emphasized. Additionally, several programs provide students with opportunities to participate in either an internship in business or industry or a clinical year of study in a hospital setting where the students' educational experiences are utilized in the workplace. Many of the programs have received or are in the process of pursuing national or international accreditation.
