You know you want a career in healthcare, but you’re not sure which one. Or maybe you know what you want to do, but you need to beef up your academic experience and résumé to compete in that field. The Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences (BSHS) program from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is designed to help you discover your goals – and reach them.


How can one major be the right fit for so many? Personalization. The Health Sciences (BSHS) program from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is custom designed around you. In your first year, you’ll take an Introduction to the Majors course to learn about all majors at MCPHS, and then a Health Sciences Seminar to explore your options within the BSHS major. 

The programme

Along the way, you’ll work one-on-one with the faculty program director and career advisors to navigate a plan that’s right for you, as well as connect with alumni to seek their insights. Whatever you decide to do, MCPHS will work with you to formalize a path forward, and your faculty mentor will help ensure that you meet all required prerequisites to achieve your goals.

As an early part of your BSHS curriculum, you’ll conduct informational interviews with professionals in your target career to gain a tangible sense of what you want to pursue. Later in the major, you’ll take a deeper dive with a full-semester internship and job shadowing. Our location in Boston’s world-renowned Longwood Medical and Academic Area offers unparalleled opportunities for hands-on learning. 

With intensive advising, plenty of due diligence, and real-world experience, you’ll graduate ready to compete in your chosen field. Three different tracks lead you to where you want to go.
