Health Science

Health care, and all its branches, will continue to increase in importance and scope for our population. Join a field that combines the study of clinical, psycho-social, organizational, and societal aspects of health, disease, and health care.

Study the use of technology in health care, behavioral and organizational interventions, and use that knowledge to improve health and patient centered care and quality of life. You’ll learn how providers, allied healthcare professionals and medical support staff critically think, manage multiple tasks, conduct research, and apply practical skills in various healthcare settings.
