About the Health Sciences Major
The new bachelor of science in health sciences (BSHS) degree program is a diverse area of study involving a variety of disciplines that contribute to the science and practice of healthcare. In our program, students are exposed to an array of courses that include chemistry, microbiology, human anatomy and physiology, biostatistics, and psychology. Additionally, students have opportunities to study various topics more in-depth, including health and society, data science, medical technology, public health, epidemiology, and many more.
This dynamic curricular and cross-disciplinary approach prepares students for a wide range of careers in the health professions, including those in clinically related patient care, community and public health, clinical research, health services, and health education and promotion. Students also are prepared for graduate study in nursing, physical therapy, speech pathology, occupational therapy, dietetics, and other clinical and non-clinical careers.
The health sciences degree program will welcome its first students in the fall of 2023.
