health studies

The three Health Studies Majors are interdisciplinary and prepare graduates for careers in the health care field, as well as graduate programs in the health professions. These interdisciplinary programs are constructed with a strong foundation in liberal arts and grounded in a core set of courses that are broadly applicable to studies of health issues and health care systems. The programs are offered in collaboration with several departments, including Business Administration, Exercise and Sport Sciences, Natural Sciences, Nursing, and Social Science and Education.

The Health Studies major was created in response to surging interest in health disciplines among current and prospective students and provides a range of alternatives in the field of healthcare to the college's Nursing major.
