Health Sciences Major — B.S.
Students in health sciences are required to declare one of two concentrations.
- The premedical concentration is designed to meet the curricular needs of students pursuing premedical graduate education.
- The planned clinical concentration is designed for students planning to pursue post-baccalaureate education in health fields such as physician assistant, nursing, dietetics, chiropractic, veterinary, and dentistry.
