Majoring in health science starts with the basic — health. With each class, you’ll dive into specifics pertaining to your personal interests while always keeping a strong focus on health care. Some of our students see themselves in a Third-World country helping teach populations about disease prevention and sanitation. Others envision a more administrative role in a traditional hospital setting or voluntary health agency, while of course, many plan to go into medicine, dentistry, physical therapy and more. Anything is possible when you join one of the largest industries in the nation. No matter your dreams, we’ll provide you the tools and training. Our graduates and our professors have worked and are working all over the world in every imaginable health-focused area.
