Learning Opportunities in Health Science
You'll gain practical experience through classroom instruction. In addition, you'll expand your knowledge through service learning projects, which combine classroom learning with hands-on application. University of the Sciences has developed partnerships with local organizations that offer community service opportunities to students. Through fieldwork, you will gain community-based educational experience related to an area of health study. This may include community-based service learning or clinical education opportunities.
An Education in Research
Research is also encouraged, and you can develop new ideas and applications in your chosen profession. Students are supported to present their research findings at national, regional, and local professional meetings.
The Chance to Customize
While a portion of the curriculum is based on required courses, you are given the ability to establish, under the guidance of an academic advisor, an individualized curriculum focused in an area of health science. You will take specific courses related to an area of interest that prepare you for future employment or further education. Sample areas of concentration include:
- Business management
- Community health/public policy
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
- Physician Assistant
