The Health Science Major focuses on human biology and prepares students for careers in diverse areas of the health industry. Our students develop an understanding of how the human body functions in health and disease, consider the methodologies used to obtain this knowledge, and acquire the skills to communicate this information within the scientific community. Our program emphasizes the scientific process by utilizing both independent and collaborative investigative approaches in the laboratory, stressing scientific communication and offering senior thesis research internships and practica so that students might gain practical experience in their area of interest.
Students who major in Health Science will explore various aspects of human biomedical science, and have the opportunity to utilize some of the most innovative technology in our beautiful facility. With emphasis on clinical learning, students are able to use the Body Viz software, which allows for a 3-D visualization of internal and external human anatomy.
Graduates of our Health Science undergraduate degree program have entered diverse fields within the dynamic healthcare system including professional medical practices, positions in biomedical research and industry, public health, hospital administration, education and medical technology.
