Historical Note: The Department of Applied Health Sciences’ programs focus on the prevention of illness and the promotion of healthy families and behaviors. An ongoing demand exists for competent health professionals and specialists in the areas of applied health sciences and research in both the public and private sectors. Course work in the department emphasizes critical thinking and problem solving, and teaches students how to influence the psychosocial, physical, and economic well-being of individuals and families in a changing global community. All majors offer experiential learning through internships and supervised clinical practice. The goal of the department, accordingly, is to provide students with the opportunity to establish a solid foundation in a variety of health professions through education and training in the classroom and the field. Graduates from the programs are well prepared for careers in public and private settings.
