You may enter the health sciences program as a freshman or as a transfer student and pursue the degree on a full- or part-time basis.

About

Our Health Sciences program grounds you in the liberal arts with a firm foundation in the sciences, while also exposing you to the realities of the health care system. By majoring in Health Sciences, you can prepare for future study in a wide range of health care careers.

The programme

The flexible curriculum allows you the opportunity to study—in addition to science core courses—advanced areas of science and medicine or to develop skills in managerial operations, educational techniques, computer science technology, or communication.

Although this is a nonclinical program, our students often pursue graduate programs in fields such as dentistry, public health, medicine, optometry, chiropractic, pharmacy, podiatry, nursing, occupational therapy, and health-care administration.

You may also complete the Bachelor of Science degree if you are a healthcare professional who has attained clinical competency through hospital-based or community-college health professions programs, such as radiologic technology. The degree may qualify you for professional advancement, graduate study, or advanced certification.
