Find Your Passion in the Healthcare Industry

In our healthcare programs, students work with their academic advisors to select electives that meet the requirements of their curriculum but also speak to their unique interests. We encourage students to step outside of the boundaries of their major and take classes across the liberal arts spectrum to help them round out their education. At our university, you won’t be surprised to see a healthcare major participating in an art show or the spring theatre performance. Our top healthcare majors include:

Occupational Therapy Assisting: You can begin a dynamic career as an occupational therapy assistant, providing support activities to help patients develop, recover, and improve skills and movements needed for daily life. You can also use this degree to transition into an occupational therapy program.
