What can I do with this degree?
A degree in Health Sciences can open up many different entry-level roles upon graduation. Students may seek employment in medical offices and health clubs as managers, nursing homes as activity coordinators, or jobs with state health governmental offices.
Some students may already be employed with an Associate’s degree or other Certification, but need the Bachelor’s degree to move up into a management role. However, the majority of students seeking to complete the Health Sciences degree are interested in applying to professional/graduate schools.
