Health Science, B.S. Curriculum Guide  (Suggested 4-Year Plan of Study)

The health science major at Salisbury University is designed to give students interested in the field of health care a foundation in knowledge and skills that is customizable to their goals. This program is specifically designed to provide an academic “home” for students who are interested in the health sciences and still exploring their options, as well as for those who have committed to pursuing a field in which a graduate degree is a requirement. By design, the major is incredibly flexible, which allows students to select the coursework that matches to their preferred career track or graduate school prerequisites.
