Curriculum

Current Students

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 a  Knights 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.

The event [for children with disabilities] was a huge success. We had about 30 children, and the students did a phenomenal job. I'm already receiving inquiries about next year's event.
