The health science major is a Bachelor of Science degree program. This program offers students an interdisciplinary approach to study health sciences, health and wellness at the population level, and global public health. The curriculum is based on a strong foundation in the health sciences. The first two years include core courses in the biological sciences, humanities, and social sciences. Juniors and seniors take an advanced sequence of courses focused on global public health, which culminates in an internship at one of our affiliated health care sites in the Boston area or abroad. Students in this major are eligible to apply for the Sargent College Thesis for Distinction. The health science major is an excellent option for students who wish to pursue the accelerated BS/MPH (4+1) program or to complete prerequisite course requirements for graduate programs in medicine, nursing, or physician assistance. Students who plan to apply to degree programs in medicine or dentistry, or in preparation for a career as a physician assistant or nurse practitioner, will take an alternate sequence of basic science courses to include graduate program prerequisite course requirements. Students will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Health Science and, if selected, a minor in a specific health concentration or other discipline. Graduates from this program may pursue employment in the health care field (e.g., public health, governmental and community agencies, insurance industry, hospitals, or the pharmaceutical industry) or may pursue graduate programs in public health or a clinical profession (e.g., physician assistant, nursing, physical therapy, pharmacy, or medicine), health administration, business, or law. Careful selection of available courses will optimize admission to desired graduate degree programs.
