Health Sciences

The Health Sciences curriculum provides individuals with the necessary background and skills to work in noncredential-driven health-career positions, as well as providing prerequisite coursework for application to graduate programs in a variety of allied health professions. Students who are pursuing admission to graduate programs in allied health, such as Midwifery, Occupational Therapy or Physical Therapy will need to complete Anatomy and Physiology II and will be advised to select that course as one of their five required major option courses. Other students may select any five of the six courses that are offered.
