What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Science in Health Studies Program is designed to prepare graduates with an understanding of a wide range of health-related concepts with a strong emphasis on problem-solving skills and critical thinking. The comprehensive curriculum provides a solid foundation of general education, health-related science and in-depth perspectives in health and healthcare delivery.

The BS in Health Studies program offers two tracks: a general track for those students who plan to work in a healthcare field and are not interested in pursuing advanced degrees that require more intensive science prerequisites; and a science track for students who plan to go on for graduate studies in Medicine, Dentistry, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physician Assistant, Health Administration, or other graduate programs.
