General Information

The overall mission of the Department of Health Sciences is to make available educational opportunities for persons interested in entering a health field or to provide an academic program for experienced health professionals who wish to further their career opportunities.

The curriculum emphasizes a view that health is different from illness and is designed to teach new students and practicing health professionals this difference. The curriculum permits students to earn a baccalaureate degree reflecting expertise in health science while focusing on an applied health-related area. Upon graduation, these health professionals will implement the concepts they have learned and direct the efforts of the public in the promotion, enhancement, and maintenance of health and in the prevention of health problems.

Criminal Background Checks. Clinical agencies utilized by the Department of Health Sciences may require criminal background checks and/or drug testing prior to acceptance of the student into clinical facilities. Students who do not pass the criminal background check and/or drug test may be unable to attend clinical courses and therefore may be unable to complete their program of study. Any fees or cost associated with background checks and/or drug testing are the responsibility of the student.
