The Department of Health Sciences offers two bachelor of science degrees designed to prepare students for graduate work leading to careers in human performance and healthcare fields. Both degrees have a core that is composed of science courses that are the common prerequisites for admission into healthcare graduate programs as well as medical school.

The B.S. in Health Sciences is a combination of basic science, behavioral science and health science courses that help to equip all students with a multidisciplinary understanding of human physiology and healthcare in today’s society. The 46 credit core is complemented by a 23-24 credit area of study which reflects an area of interest for graduate work in specialized healthcare professions.

The B.S. in Applied Human Physiology offers courses that focus on the physiological and metabolic consequences of diet and exercise. This major offers a 44 credit core requirement plus a 24 credit area of study.
