What is Health Sciences?

Health sciences, according to ASAHP, is the segment of health care that delivers identification, evaluation and prevention of diseases; nutrition; health systems management; and rehabilitation services.

As a health sciences professional, you will need to rely on critical thinking and a well-rounded understanding of your health sciences occupation, which you can continue to develop through further education.

  • Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management: This degree completion program will help you develop and enhance your leadership skills, and apply business concepts and critical thinking to tasks within the healthcare industry to prepare you to meet the demands of the ever-changing healthcare system.

We offer an Associate in Applied Science program:
