The Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences is a versatile degree that provides students with preparation for work and/or graduate school in the health field. This interdisciplinary degree is for students seeking a comprehensive understanding of the science of human health. The exercise and sport science concentration is appropriate for students interested in personal training, sports administration/management, sport leadership, exercise science, biomechanics, strength and conditioning, athletic coaching, and fitness specialties.
Upon completion, a number of students apply and are accepted into the following professional schools: physician assistant, physical therapy, occupational therapy and athletic trainer. To accommodate these careers, we offer courses that are both academically and physically challenging. This unique degree offers science-based courses in the field of health and nutrition as well as performance-based activity courses.
In this course of study, you’ll have all kinds of cool classes related to your interests and passions. You’ll take courses with topics ranging from the psychology of sport and physical activity to first aid and safety. You’ll also have the opportunity to work closely with faculty as you work on undergraduate research projects. As a way to specialize your course of study and dive deeper, we encourage you to supplement your health science degree by adding a minor in related fields including nutritional science, coaching, or sport marketing and management.
