The B.S. in Health Science degree combines courses from both the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) and the College of Business (COB). The degree is founded in science, humanities and business, and designed specifically to provide students with a broad-based education in preparation for a wide spectrum of health services occupations or post-baccalaureate study.

The degree will prepare students for competitive graduate programs (e.g. Public Health, Public Administration, MBA, speech-language pathology, and Law School) or for direct entry into a health-related career (e.g. sales, hospital administration, health & safety, speech-language pathology assistant, compliance, marketing, research support, management, communications, fundraising/development).

Undergraduates seeking this degree complete core courses and upper division courses in two cognate areas:

1) Healthcare Administration from the COB or
2) Health Science and Humanities from CAS or
3) Public Health (USF Tampa); and a required senior capstone course or
4) Communication Sciences and Disorders from the COE; and a required senior capstone course.
