New major focuses on the science of human health

The College of Science launched a BioHealth Sciences major last fall to better prepare students seeking a strong, broad foundational course of study in science as preparation for a career in healthcare. The BioHealth Sciences major replaces the General Science program and offers a more focused course of study on human health.

Housed in the Department of Microbiology, our BioHealth Sciences majors earn a Bachelor of Science degree and complete most of the prerequisites required for admission to professional schools.

But some students simply desire a comprehensive grounding in the science behind the medical treatments, diseases and cures.
