»Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences

New, innovative ways of providing health care at lower costs to more people are the themes driving changes in the health care industry.  These themes are also challenging educators to change the way future health care providers are educated.  Thus, Chapman faculty members have proactively designed the B.S. Health Sciences degree program to stress a team approach to health care and a biological-psychological-sociological perspective on understanding health and disease.
 
Students are not only asked to excel in classroom studies but to experience the various roles health care providers play in addressing health needs through a strong internship program.  Students are also required to work in teams to develop and complete research projects relevant to community health issues. By the time students graduate, they know the various contributions made by members of a health care team, they know how to work as team members, and they know the importance of research in advancing our understanding of health and disease.
 
Award-winning faculty members are also active scientists, currently working with students on such topics as the impact of resistance training on bone formation during growth.
 
Though the program is only three years old, it is the third largest major in the college.  With an adept combination of preparation and innovation, students stand to enter the industry way ahead of the curve. The B.S. in Health Sciences prepares students for graduate programs in Physical Therapy, Podiatric Medicine, Physicians Assistant, and other related health sciences.
