Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

The health studies program provides a number of paths to students who wish to work in a health-related career but do not want to pursue nursing. Graduates are well prepared to immediately enter non-clinical occupations within the health care sector, and/or to pursue master’s degrees in health and human services or doctoral level training in health services research, public health, health education and more. Additionally, for students who already hold an associate degree in a health-related field, this program has been designed with an accessible two-year degree completion track, allowing graduates to quickly earn their bachelor’s and move into management and leadership roles within the industry.
