What You Can Do With A Health Sciences Degree

Hodges’ Bachelor’s in Health Sciences is a multidisciplinary studies degree for health science majors that allows students to complete our core curriculum while choosing select electives best suited to their chosen graduate studies and career objectives.

  • Receive personalized attention that helps you choose electives that will help you lay a foundation for graduate school for careers such as physicians, physician assistants, therapists, medical scientists, and more.
  • Our health sciences degree is an ideal choice for those looking for careers in healthcare positions such as wellness, supervisory roles, administrative/clerical, communications, or health education.

Those who have graduated from our AS in PTA or AS in EMS programs may be able to earn the BS degree faster by completing a few general education courses, chemistry and microbiology, and some additional elective credits without taking other chemistry or biology courses.
