Bachelor of Science in Health and Human Sciences
Promoting global and public health today requires individuals to not only be knowledgeable
of the biological and physical aspects of health, but also the roles played by social
and cultural forces.
The B.S. in Health and Human Sciences acknowledges this need by combining coursework in the natural sciences
(biology, physics, chemistry) with the humanities (art, history, philosophy) and
social sciences (sociology, political science, economics) in a mix that is ideal

Graduates of the Health and Human Sciences program will be prepared to enter the
workforce in a variety of health-related fields or pursue advanced studies in graduate
or professional school.
Careers may include roles as health counselors; science and health writers; policy
analysts; and researchers for governmental organizations, consumer groups, and scientific
Students will also have an excellent foundation for post-graduate work in law, health
services and administration. They may also choose to pursue graduate programs in
nutrition, public health, health administration, anthropology, sociology, or other
