Applied Health Science, Health Science Specialization
Graduates of the health science specialization are qualified to enter master’s programs in almost any allied health profession, such as physical or occupational therapy or physician assistant, and can also meet the admissions requirements for medical, dental and veterinary schools.
Internships and Careers
While not required for the degree, students are encouraged to pursue experiential learning opportunities, such as participation in internships, community service, and career-related student organizations. Many graduate programs require shadowing or volunteer experiences in order to be considered for admission. Students looking to go into graduate medical programs are supported by the Office of Pre-Professional Programs to help understand expectations and gain connections to these experiences.
