With a large majority of the population aging and needing greater care, and medical advances moving at lightening speed, a career in the health care industry is a smart path.

Students can choose from a broad spectrum of courses on health issues including socio-cultural influences on health, health management, the systems of health care, legal and ethical concerns, health behavior and promotion, environmental influences on health, nutrition, mental health, life cycle health, alternative/complimentary medicine and epidemiology. The curriculum will prepare you for a wide range of health care positions in hospitals, health departments, health agencies, research facilities, schools, and industry.
