As a health science major at SBU, you will build a strong understanding of the healthcare industry and receive opportunities to apply the practical knowledge you have gained.
In cooperation with the Mercy College of Nursing and Health Sciences of Southwest Baptist University located in Springfield, Mo., the SBU-Salem campus offers associate and bachelor degrees in health sciences and the SBU-Mountain View campus offers an associate of applied science degree.
The associate of health science degree is a great option for students interested in earning a healthcare degree to compliment a certificate program (such as EMT, medical assisting, or paramedic) or gaining a foundation degree in the health sciences.
The bachelor of science in health sciences degree is a degree-completion program for allied health professionals already in an established career, or for a student interested in pursuing a degree in healthcare.
Southwest Baptist University is a Christ-centered university and is committed to the integration of faith and academics in all programs and degrees. Class discussions include open dialogue about how faith impacts the academic discipline. Students are encouraged to consider their own faith and how they will incorporate their faith in their chosen career paths. SBU's goal is to produce academically qualified career professionals who are also servant leaders in today's global society.
