The Health Sciences major is intended for the student who has an interest in health care, but has not fulfilled the requirements for a specific program within the school. The Health Sciences degree is not intended as a primary major of study but can be used as a foundation of study when circumstances have prevented successful completion of the student's initial health care education choices. This major requires at least 36 credits in allied fields, with 16 credits in HSC-designated courses or related courses approved by the dean of the School of Health Sciences. Sixteen of those credits must be at the upper-division level. Students with a departmental major within the health sciences are ineligible for this option. A student interested in this concentration must apply for an upper-division Health Sciences major through the school dean. There is no Health Sciences minor.
