In-Demand Community-Focused Healthcare

Welcome to the Department of Health and Health Education (HEED)! As part of the School of Allied Health, we focus on graduating health science professionals and community health educators. We know that barriers exist to helping individuals, families, and other groups understand health and health problems—that’s where our programs come in.  Our Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences trains future professionals to be community advocates, public health experts, as well as translators and creators of transformational health policy.  

Health Sciences is the foundation for all of health. Students majoring in Health Sciences learn not only the foundations of health but are strongly encouraged to develop their health-related entrepreneurial skills and create their own futures. Become a part of this innovative major that produces change agents and entrepreneurs in all aspects of health. "The best way to predict your future is to create it."
