From the Chair

"As the sole non-clinical department in the College of Health Professions, the Department of Health Sciences prepares students for the growing fields of Public Health, Gerontology, Health Administration, Human Performance, Fitness Management and Health Informatics.  I invite you to explore what some 500 undergraduate and graduate students already know - that the Health Sciences faculty and staff can take a student's passion and transform it into a career through high-quality educational and practical experiences."
- Dr. Robert LeFavi, Interim Department Head

About the Department

The overall mission of the Department of Health Sciences is to provide educational opportunities and accredited academic programs for students interested in entering a health field as well as experienced health professionals who wish to further their career opportunities. The curriculum emphasizes a view that health is different from illness and is designed to teach new students and practicing health professionals this difference. The undergraduate and graduate curricula permit students to earn a baccalaureate or master's degree reflecting expertise in the health sciences while focusing on an applied health-related area. Upon graduation, these health professionals will implement the concepts they have learned and direct the efforts of the public in the promotion, enhancement, and maintenance of health and in the prevention of health problems.
