The Health Science concentration is designed for students who wish to enter a healthcare related field (that does not require licensure, certification or registry status) such as corporate wellness, human services, non-profit health promotion, and medical and pharmaceutical sales. Graduates holding a degree in Health Science may also be qualified to enter either graduate or professional health science programs, such as public health, health education and promotion, physical therapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy, nursing, speech-language pathology, audiology, radiation safety, clinical lab science, and healthcare administration. A minimum grade of C is required in all HPEX Core, Health Science Core, Clinical Experiences, and Elective courses. Students cannot use more than one HPEX course (3 credits) from the Exercise Science Core as an elective.
