The Health Sciences Department helps students master theoretical and practical aspects of the sciences in preparation for careers and graduate studies in healthcare or sport and wellness. Organizational, communication, interpersonal, leadership, and technical skills are emphasized within a liberal arts framework. Health Sciences students are challenged to integrate faith, knowledge, and compassion in an interprofessional approach to either understanding and treating medical conditions or assisting others to maintain healthy, physically active bodies. The goal is to prepare graduates for the many opportunities they will encounter as they minister to the spiritual, psychological, and physical needs of their patients or clients that accompany the pursuit of health and wellness.
