Health Science Programs

Some of the highest predictors for employment growth are reported to be in the health science fields.  Health science degrees prepares the graduate to assume a variety of roles within clinical and non-clinical settings. The Center for Health Workforce Studies found that, consistent with findings from previous analyses of Bureau of Labor Statistics projections, although the employment growth in all other sectors declined, jobs in healthcare will continue to grow between 2010 and 2020.  Students who earn health science degrees can work in a variety of health care industries and advance their careers by using the essential healthcare knowledge and skills learned such as critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, information literacy and information management.
