Health Sciences Curricular Options

The Health Sciences curriculum is flexible in order to serve the needs of a variety of health care career interests.  Students choose to focus their education according to one of two available tracks, depending on their areas of interest: Clinical and Applied Sciences or Health Services Management.

Clinical and Applied Sciences track students have the option for the Three to a HS Degree. This option allows students to complete their BS in Health Sciences - Clinical and Applied track in three years - an excellent option for students who plan to pursue post-graduate degree options like medical school, physical therapy, physicians’ assistant and other masters or doctoral degrees.

Students in both tracks have the opportunity to complete additional academic opportunities that will add value to their Drake education.  A variety of double majors, minors and concentrations can be added to any Health Sciences major. 

Clinical and Applied Sciences students have the following degree options:

Health Services Management students have the following degree combination options:
