Bachelor of Science in Health Science

The focus of the Bachelor of Science in Health Science program is to provide a comprehensive health science education to undergraduate students. As a pre-professional program, it is designed to provide the foundational degree for those wishing to pursue graduate education in the pure or applied health sciences or in the health professions, such as medicine, nursing, or pharmacy.
