A B.S. in Health Sciences at Centenary University provides students with an interdisciplinary exposure to a wide variety of careers in the healthcare industry. In addition to the university core and fundamentals, the curriculum includes courses in human biology, psychology, sociology, public health, health care policy and health sciences. An internship in a healthcare field is required for graduation and provides a great opportunity to increase the student’s experiential learning.
Upon completion of this program, students are ready to enter the workforce in healthcare or to continue toward an advanced degree in the health sciences. Centenary University achieved an applicant status with the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE). ACOTE has provided a proposed MOT program launch date in 2025. The B.S. in health science program is the foundational degree to lead into the MOT and to other health science-related graduate programs, such as physician assistant.
