Health Sciences


You have dreams. Aspirations. Goals of using your talents to make a difference in the world. Maybe you want to become a doctor, chiropractor, optometrist or other health care professional. Edinboro's rigorous Health Sciences program can help you get there.



Challenge Yourself

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts jobs will increase 10% for life science occupations by 2026.

Why Edinboro Stands Out.

Edinboro's new Health Sciences program goes beyond other undergraduate degrees to give you a competitive edge.

Here, you will learn with the best of the best. You'll be surrounded by students like yourself who are focused and serious about careers in health care.

You'll not only push yourself, but also prepare yourself for the next step -- professional school or a demanding and satisfying career in a health-related field.

Our interdisciplinary curriculum is designed to match the entrance requirements for specific professional programs here at Edinboro, so you gain the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to go on to master's and doctoral-level programs.

How Edinboro Supports You.

The Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences program provides you with a solid foundation in biology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, as well coursework in math, psychology and communications.

A capstone experience during your final semester will ensure you are well-prepared to go on to a master's or professional program or enter the workforce in a health-related career such as a health service manager, pharmaceutical representative or community health educator.

Your Future
