The Bachelor of Science in Health Science prepares students with a foundation of interdisciplinary knowledge that allows upon graduation in three years a career in a health profession or the pursuit of further graduate study and/or professional degree.

  • The versality of the degree can lead to a job in a non-clinical or clinical setting such as health educator, surgical technician, biomedical, or medical lab technician.

Healthcare today is a diverse employment field. As a health science graduate, you could work in many different settings or organizations. Some of these include, but are not limited to, hospitals, clinics, pharmaceutical companies, government, or insurance companies.
