Overview | Curriculum | Course Descriptions | Experiential Learning | Student groups


The Health Sciences integrated curriculum model builds upon a foundation of the natural sciences, social sciences, and the liberal arts. Courses in the Health Science major will introduce you to the United States healthcare system and provide you with the opportunity to develop a deep understanding of health policy and administration, health research, quality-of-care improvement, and evidence-based health care. The Health sciences curriculum also includes a significant number of electives that enable you to pursue an area of interest or a minor. Students will have the option to complete the program in four or five years with or without a co-op experience. In the senior year, students participate in a capstone project intended to broaden and integrate the knowledge, skills, and experience gained from the program of study.

Students interested in graduate school in medicine, dentistry, podiatry, and veterinary medicine may opt to follow a Pre-Medical focus, including courses required for medical school. Please visit the PreHealth Advising website for course requirements.
