Health Care Studies Undergraduate Programs
Program Mission and Description
The B.S. in Health Care Studies program has as its primary educational mission the preparation of students to become knowledgeable, adaptable, reflective and service oriented professionals. This undergraduate program provides a combination of contemporary studies in health-related areas, comprehensive liberal arts and foundational behavioral, social and natural science course work directed toward development of a graduate committed to a holistic approach to health care, prevention and wellness, and health management through life-long personal and professional growth.
Students select coursework within each of these core areas that will meet their desired career goals with professional training concentrations available in Community Health (Education, Administration, and General Community Health Principles), Complementary and Alternative Health Care Practices, and Health and Fitness Training. This multi-faceted Bachelor of Science Program provides students with a strong background in physiological, psychological, sociological, behavioral and business aspects of health and health care. Students learn through service and the program culminates in a professional internship in their particular area of interest.
Graduates from the Bachelor of Science in Health Care Studies program may enter directly into health related career paths or pursue admission to graduate or other degree programs in many professional disciplines such as allied health (physical therapy, physician assistant, athletic training and occupational therapy), education, public health, business, or complementary and alternative practitioner programs.
The Bachelor of Science in Health Care Studies may also be completed as a combined degree with the Master of Science in Athletic Training. Students who qualify for this program will complete a specialization in Health and Fitness Training before moving on to the graduate portion of the curriculum. See the Athletic Training section for program details.
