Health Science (Generalist)

The generalist emphasis in health science provides students with an opportunity to explore the discipline as a means of making informed career and academic pathway decisions.  It is especially appealing for those who wish to matriculate within the health professions while addressing admissions requirements of other programs such as nursing or physical therapy.  Additionally, the generalist emphasis is beneficial to those wishing to study general health areas – such as nutrition, fitness, health promotion, and epidemiology – as a means of preparation for graduate study.
