Mission: To provide outstanding experiential education to future health professionals to empower them to address current issues in health through education, service, advocacy, research, and cutting edge scholarly activities.
Vision: To improve health outcomes through education and empowerment of emerging health professionals.
The objective of the Health Sciences program is to train scientists and health specialists through a combination of coursework and experiential learning, such as internships, independent studies, and faculty-directed research. Our course requirements are designed to prepare students for entrance into graduate programs and professional health programs in areas such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, public health, nursing, and physician assistant. We also provide students with practical skills that can qualify them for entry-level positions in biological sciences and health-related occupations.
The Health Sciences Major consists of three concentrations: Public Health, Pre-Nursing and Pre-Physical Therapy. The major curriculum consists of a common core group of courses followed by specific course work in an area of concentration for a total of 46-61 credits. Each of these concentrations incorporates various supporting courses such as chemistry, mathematics, health and physical education, sociology, health informatics, healthcare management and psychology, that prepare students for careers in that particular field of health.
Our department is located in Science Building where we have access to state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories, and equipment. Our departmental office also provides students with resources regarding career advisement, student involvement, community engagement, and leadership development.
