The Bethel University Paris Campus
The Bethel University Paris Campus gives students the benefits of Bethel coursework minus the hassle of gas and commuting time to other campuses. It provides spillover classroom space for students taking classes toward a bachelor’s degree in business, and also serves as classroom space for high school honors and dual credit courses. The Bethel Paris campus has the unique distinction of being the school’s first satellite campus to be equipped with resources that prepare students for health sciences jobs. Serving primarily as an extension of Bethel University’s College of Health Sciences, the Paris campus provides classroom space for students conducting clinical rotations. A medical sciences skills lab, a physical therapy lab, a nursing and physician assistant practice lab, a biology lab and a gross anatomy cadaver lab will all be a part of the campus.
The new Paris Campus allows for a broader array of health sciences offerings at Bethel. Health sciences offerings being evaluated include physical therapy, diagnostic imaging, advanced practice nursing and advanced laboratory services. Currently, Bethel University offers a bachelor of science in nursing, a master’s of science in physician assistant studies and a number of undergraduate programs that prepare students for placement in advanced health sciences study. Bethel University holds accreditation credentials from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), from the Accreditation Review Commission of Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA), and from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
