Program Outcomes

Welcome to the Health Sciences Program webpage. The Department of Health, Human Performance, and Leisure Studies offers a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences. The Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences prepares students for work within health education and health related fields. Within the B.S. in Health Sciences Program, there are two emphasis areas: Community Health Education and Leadership in Allied Health and Rehabilitation.
The Community Health Education (non-teaching) emphasis area is designed for students who plan to work as health educators. This emphasis area prepares individuals to take the C.H.E.S. (Certified Health Education Specialist) exam. The field of health education offers many opportunities for graduates to work as health educators in a variety of settings including university settings, corporations, local, state, and federal health departments, hospitals, volunteer agencies, and public schools.
The Leadership in Allied Health and Rehabilitation  emphasis area is designed for health care providers in allied health fields. This concentration will build upon their existing professional knowledge to enhance their skills in communications, critical thinking, problem solving, research, and health theories. In addition, the concentration will equip graduates with leadership skills as they relate to the allied health disciplines. Successful completion of the concentration will increase the mobility of graduates into leadership positions in their respective professions.
Should either of these emphasis areas be of interest to you, please feel free to contact me (Dr. Robinson) using the contact information above. We look forward to you become a part of our program.
