Undergraduate Program in Health Science

The undergraduate program in Health Science offers 3 pathways for completing a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Health Science and three minors. 

The educational activities in the Undergraduate Program in Health Science are guided by six core ideas about health:

  1. Health is a multi-faceted experience that includes multiple forms of wellbeing;
  2. Health and wellness promotion require community collaboration and involvement.
  3. Health, illness, and disease are population-level phenomena studied through epidemiological methods and ecological frames;
  4. Health is influenced by the quality of our social and physical environments;
  5. Aging, human development, and intergenerational relationships are key influences on individual and population-level health;
  6. Inequalities in healthcare access and outcomes are neither accidental nor unavoidable and are studied as social problems to be addressed through research, advocacy, and community organizing.
