The B.S. in Health Sciences program addresses one of the most pressing challenges of the twenty-first century, that of providing adequate healthcare to the growing and aging population. The degree program builds upon a common foundation, consisting of general education and biology, chemistry and physics courses, and leads to tracks in exercise and fitness, and nutrition.
The program’s pre-professional track also affords students flexibility, following completion of the foundation, to select an additional 30 semester hours in natural science and health science courses appropriate to their professional aspirations.
Program graduates will work in healthcare settings an the entry level, seek further professional training in a healthcare field, or seek further education in a related field.
