Home / Degree Programs / Health Sciences

The BS program in health sciences is designed to provide the academic knowledge and skills that allows students to move directly into a range of employment opportunities within the health field or to continue their education in discipline-specific programs. Students choose a track focus in either community-based health outcomes, health legislation and regulation, integrated care, or Spanish and health.

A limited number of students each year may apply to pursue the echocardiography certificate through the Mayo Clinic. Once the certificate is successfully completed, students may transfer the credits to Arizona State University, and those credits may be applied toward completion of the Bachelor of Science in health sciences.
