Health - BS, Allied Health Track
The goals of the curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Science in Health are to more effectively develop literate, informed professionals capable of making the world healthier and more humane. Students receive a general education through a broad exposure to information. They also receive a specialized education through coursework designed to help them develop as a professional, expand their knowledge and skills related to health education and prepare them for professional practice.
The Health degree provides students a strong background in health that serves them well if they choose to pursue additional schooling in an allied health area. This degree provides an opportunity for students to take prerequisite courses for professional allied health schools such as nursing, PA, PT, OT, or other medical fields of study, as electives while receiving a background in the health education field. Students select electives from a list of prerequisites for specific professional school programs. Those students wishing to pursue a teaching certificate can do so with a minor in Secondary Education.
