Health Sciences Degree (Mountain View/Salem)

Earn a degree in health sciences
(Mountain View & Salem, MO Campuses)

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 SBU's College of Health Professions 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.
