Department of Health Sciences A Project of Henson School of Science & Technology
The Department of Health Sciences is comprised of two undergraduate programs, medical laboratory science and respiratory therapy, and a graduate program in applied health physiology. Each program provides a curriculum that prepares graduates for national certification in their fields of study. Changes in healthcare are constant and fast-paced, and the department strives to keep the curriculum current and the resources modern and state-of-the art. Not only does the department employ traditional learning with lectures and laboratories, but it also leverages technology for the optimum student experience in a safe environment. Students then enter their clinical internships better prepared to deliver a high level of patient care. Graduates with healthcare majors are in high demand, especially from high quality programs, and the department enjoys excellent student outcomes. All three programs enjoy top tier rates of graduates passing licensing and credentialing exams as well as job placement, and the department is eager to maintain these high standards.
