Program Academic Focus
The Health Science program of study is designed to provide students with two pathways for preparation in health careers.
Pre-Professional Health Careers
The Pre-Professional Pathway prepares you for graduate or professional study in medical school, physical therapy, occupational therapy, physicians’ assistant and other health-related programs. Students take a core of health-related courses, with ample flexibility to select courses needed for admission into your chosen field of post-baccalaureate study.
Accelerated Master’s in Athletic Training
The Accelerated Master’s in Athletic Training pathway prepares you for a career in athletic training through our innovative 3+2 program. Students complete both a bachelor’s in Health Science and master’s in Athletic Training in five years. Your fourth year serves as both the senior year of the bachelor’s in Health Science and the first year of the master’s degree in Athletic Training, as long as you meet admission criteria for the graduate program.
To prepare students to meet the entrance requirements of graduate schools in areas such as athletic training, physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician’s assistant, medicine, public health, exercise sciences, biomechanics, and hospital administration.
