Overview

The General Health Sciences Option to the Health Sciences degree is designed for those who wish to work in a medical science capacity, but not necessarily in a defined undergraduate field of study such as Radiological Technician or Medical Technician. This area of study provides a fall back area for students who have decided not to pursue professional programs such as medical school or physical therapy school. Students who have shifted their focus to graduate study in exercise physiology, athletic training or chiropractic would find this to be a suitable field of study.

In basic terms the General Health Sciences option opens up a broad array of professional fields for students upon graduation. The curriculum is designed to provide students with a base of knowledge which will allow them to pursue varied interests, including medical sales.
