Employment in health care is projected to grow nearly 20 percent through 2026, accounting for about 2.4 million new jobs—more than any other occupational group, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics.
If you are interested in a career in high-growth health care fields, our Bachelor of Science program in Health Science provides you with two great options:
The Pre-Professional Pathway prepares you for graduate or professional study in medical school, physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant, and other related programs. Students take a core of health-related courses, with ample flexibility to shape a curriculum needed for admission into your chosen field of post-baccalaureate study.
The accelerated Master of Athletic Training pathway prepares you for a career in athletic training through our innovative 3+2 program. Students complete both a bachelor’s in Health Science and master’s in Athletic Training in five years. Your fourth year serves as both the senior year of the bachelor’s in Health Science and the first year of the master’s degree in Athletic Training, as long as you meet admission criteria for the graduate program.
