About us

Our online Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences program is flexible enough so that students can continue to work and meet family obligations while advancing their education.  Although not required, students with an earned Associates Degree in any field can have program coursework waived.  

The health sciences program is a foundational undergraduate degree that introduces students to the health care field and provides in-depth science learning which prepares them for a health-related career or a graduate professional health program.

This unique undergraduate degree may be used by students to enter the workforce or to apply to a graduate professional program including medicine, dentistry, occupational therapy, physical therapy, public health, hospital administration, physician’s assistant, nurse practitioner and medical dietetics.
