The Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences is designed for students with interest in human health leading to graduate study or career advancement. This degree is designed to provide the students with a solid educational background in basic and health-related sciences, while providing the foundation courses required for admission to graduate level clinical programs in health professions including but not limited to medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician assistant, and occupational therapy. The flexibility of this program allows students to prepare for multiple careers in health sciences. Students in this major who choose the Health Sciences track are required to have an overall GPA of 2.5 or better upon graduation. Students who select the Pre-Clinical track must maintain a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 to stay in this track.

Admission Requirements

  • None

Degree Requirements

  • Students who change programs and select this major must adopt the most current catalog.
  • Students in the Health Sciences track must achieve at least 2.5 overall GPA for graduation.
  • Students in the Pre-Clinical track must maintain a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 to get into and stay in this track.
  • Students who select the Pre-Clinical track will be classified as “pending”. The program will verify that the students meet the track requirements at the conclusion of that semester. If requirements are met, the track will be changed to Pre-Clinical for the subsequent semester. Students will be notified of this change.
  • Students in the Pre-Clinical track who fail to maintain a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 will be given one semester to bring their overall GPA to 3.0. At the end of that semester, if the overall GPA is still below 3.0, the student will be moved to the Health Sciences track.  Students will be notified of this change. It is highly recommended that students meet with a Health Sciences advisor once they are moved to the Health Sciences track.
  • Students who fail to maintain the Pre-Clinical track requirements and are moved to the Health Sciences track are not permitted to reapply for the Pre-Clinical track.
  • The courses designated in sections 1 and 2 below may be taken at a Florida College System institution, and should usually be completed in the first 60 hours.
  • A minimum grade of “C” (2.0) in each program prerequisite course, in each core requirement course, and in each restricted elective is required (see sections 2 through 5 below). Students should note that graduate programs may require a higher level of performance for admission.
  • No transfer course will be accepted with a grade lower than a “C” (2.0).
