Through the Department of Physician Assistant Studies and the Department of Physical Therapy, the School of Health Professions delivers the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to serve in the health care professions. We also offer current health care professionals the opportunity to further their career development.
Careers as either a physician assistant or a physical therapist are among the most rewarding and needed of all the health care professions. Individuals serving in these careers have challenging and satisfying careers while enjoying considerable flexibility in their choice of practice and working conditions. Classes in both PT and PA programs include inter-professional experiences designed to prepare students to be contributing members of the healthcare team.
The Department of Lifestyle Health Sciences offers a Master of Science degree in Lifestyle Health Sciences & Coaching. This is an innovative program designed to provide the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to effectively address health behaviors and become a credentialed health and wellness coach with a specialization in lifestyle medicine. The foundational competencies covered will complement other HSC health professions programs as well as graduate individuals for careers in the rewarding and growing field of health and wellness coaching.
Our programs are accredited by the appropriate agencies.
