On-Campus Health Studies Degree Program
The Health Studies program offers a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Health Studies degree through in-class, on-campus attendance. The undergraduate program offers on-campus education with two options:
Health Studies Pre-Professional (HSPP) Option: This option is for those students who plan to seek admission to post-baccalaureate graduate programs such as occupational therapy (OT) or other health-related graduate schools. The Pre-Professional Health Studies option can be customized to include necessary requirements for admission to health professions graduate programs. Students can access the degree plan in FlightPath.
Health Studies Healthcare Management/Marketing (HSMM) Option: This option is for those students who desire a terminal undergraduate degree for mid-level managerial employment in healthcare. This option incorporates the same core health studies courses as the Pre-Professional Health Studies Option and includes additional management and marketing courses. Students can access the degree plan in FlightPath.
Elective Credits: Both options have adequate elective credits which allow students to design a course of study in an area of their interest (e.g. a minor in Psychology, Gerontology, Biology, Finance, Business Administration, etc.)
Hence, students can focus their degree in a specialized field of study, still keeping healthcare marketing/management or pre-professional health studies as the major concentration. Students can access the guided electives for this major in FlightPath.
