We offer a Bachelor of Science degree in health science with four options to choose from: health education, health services administration, environmental health, and gerontology. We also provide subject matter competency for students wishing to enter the California Teaching Credential Program for a junior high or high school teaching credential in health science. Our students complete an action-oriented and practical course of professional study to prepare for careers working in hospitals, voluntary health agencies, government agencies, private industry, grass-roots organizations, and schools.
