Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Studies

Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Studies is designed to give students a multidisciplinary perspective on human health and healthcare. In addition to the expected combination of science courses with laboratories, this degree program requires healthcare foundation courses as well as courses specifically related to the study of healthcare in a philosophical, historical, psychological, sociological and biological context.

The program is focused on healthcare-related knowledge as well as scientific prerequisite courses required for applying to health professions schools, setting it apart from other scientific programs that focus on science courses. This healthcare-related knowledge will give you more conversational flexibility and professional depth during the interview process with health professional schools.
