The Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences is designed for students with interest in human health leading to graduate study or career advancement. The Pre-Clinical Track is designed to provide 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, dentistry, optometry, physician assistant, and physical therapy. The flexibility of this program allows students to prepare for multiple careers in health sciences.
