Health Sciences

Health science courses are concerned with fundamental issues in human health and disease and are, therefore, interdisciplinary in both scope and content. They have been designed not only for students anticipating careers in medicine, dentistry, nursing, public health, pharmacy, social work, medical technology, physical therapy, cytotechnology, and numerous other health care professions and services, but for all students interested in individual and community health, the clinical and paramedical arts, and the biomedical sciences. Health sciences courses are listed under two designations: 1) Allied Health: Health Sciences; 2) other disciplines.
