The American University of Health Sciences is a fundie school in Signal Hill, California. The AUHS is supposedly a quality private Christian health science university focusing on Pharmacy and Nursing.[1] But since the school places a heavy emphasis on their Christian beliefs and supports creationism, it is dubious how much quality it has.


AUHS holds national accreditation from the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools and specialized accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.[2] The school of pharmacy however does not hold accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education which accredits pharmacy programs.[3] This leaves some doubt as to whether their school of pharmacy is actually any good.

Fundamentalist hotbed[edit]

The AUHS has highly religious fundamental Christian material all over their website. There is even a category called, "God". Not even Bob Jones University has their religion section named that.

Remember, in order to be a good medical professional you must believe in creationism, biblical literalism and "traditional" family life. Being gay is bad according to their statement of faith.


AUHS has bachelor's through master's degrees both of research and professional nature. The university is divided into a School of Nursing and School of Pharmacy.
