Our top priority in the Department of Health Sciences is to provide quality education. The faculty, who are expert practitioners and researchers, prepare students for dynamic careers in healthcare. Students learn by doing in the numerous hands-on labs, the campus Speech and Hearing Clinic, and the community. There are many opportunities for students to participate in service-learning in the community, clinical and fieldwork experiences, online learning, and faculty research.
Health care today is rapidly changing, challenging practitioners to be innovative, think both independently and collaboratively, and take leadership. The programs in Health Sciences prepare students for these challenges. The graduates of these programs will be tomorrow’s leaders in designing services that promote the health and well-being of the citizens of our communities.
