Curriculum & Courses

To earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Science, a student must meet all academic requirements (reflected in the student's degree audit maintained by the registrar's office) and earn an overall grade-point average (GPA) of 2.0. (NOTE: While a 2.0 cumulative GPA is required for graduation, students are advised that admission to graduate programs in allied health are very competitive, often requiring a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better.)

Below are suggested plans of study for each of the concentrations in the Health Science major. These are only suggestions for plans that meet degree requirements; you will build your plan in consultation with your adviser.

Click on one of the concentration areas listed below (or simply scroll down) to find that concentration's plan of study. To see the description of a particular course, click on its title. Our Course Descriptions page lists all health science courses.
