The College of Health Professions and Science is comprised of undergraduate and graduate programs that are designed to prepare individuals for careers in the health professions and natural sciences. Academic programs in the Health Professions, such as the behavioral sciences (e.g., health promotion, human services, rehabilitation), therapeutic sciences (e.g., athletic training and RN-BSN) and support services (e.g., health administration) prepare students with the technical skills needed to work in the dynamic healthcare field. Academic Programs in the Natural Sciences, such as B.S. in Biology, Chemistry, Health and Human Performance and the B.A. in Biology, prepare students for post-baccalaureate programs in medicine, dentistry, veterinary, pharmacy and physical therapy as well as providing them with the skills needed for careers in analytical chemistry, biochemistry and biology. These programs also prepare students to be critical thinkers in their chosen profession, develop a historical consciousness, broaden their understanding of the diversity of the profession and individuals, and develop a defined sense of values that will guide them in their career.
