The Bachelor of Sciences in Health Sciences curriculum prepares
students for advanced studies in both clinical and non-clinical
fields. Students should determine their interests in graduate
education as soon as possible upon entering the program to ensure
their inclusion of prerequisites for graduate and professional
programs in their course of study.
The core curriculum provides a foundation in chemistry, biology,
physics and social science. Upper-level core requirements focus in
areas such as research methods, pharmacology, epidemiology, and
pathophysiology. Additional elective courses allow students the
flexibility to fulfill required prerequisites for their chosen
graduate and professional programs.
Students are expected to have access to a personal computer and
Email account in order to interact with the instructional
faculty. Many of the curriculum-required courses are offered
web-based as well as face-to-face.
