Health Sciences

The mission of the Division of Health Sciences is to provide quality classroom, laboratory, and clinical education, and to promote the development of students by preparing them for certification eligibility and entry-level employment in their chosen health career. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs in healthcare are projected to grow 18 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations.
