Health Science, BS (transition)
Students who matriculated prior to fall 2016 may either follow this curriculum or the new curriculum under "Lowell Institute Programs."
The Bachelor of Science in Health Science seeks to help develop competent professionals who combine a solid understanding of the science underlying healthcare with the principles of healthcare management. Courses in biology, microbiology, chemistry, pharmacology, and pathophysiology provide an understanding of the science of the human body. These courses may be combined with courses in the management of healthcare organizations; health law; public health; or, for students interested in a medical career, additional science courses.
The program seeks to provide preparation for a career in healthcare management in a community, hospital, or private-sector setting or for graduate school for advanced training in areas such as medicine, nursing, and public health.
