BHS Mission & Program Outcomes

Mission

Supporting the SoNHS’ mission to prepare the health professional workforce in improving health outcomes, the purpose of the Bachelor of Health Sciences program is to prepare graduates for a wide variety of careers in health or to pursue post-graduate education. Through an innovative combination of coursework, service learning, volunteerism, and a senior year internship, students will apply theoretical concepts in evidence-based health programming and health policy development into diverse community settings.

Student learning outcomes

  • Students will be able to apply knowledge from physical, biological, behavioral, business, and social aspects of health into inter-professional practice.
  • Students will be able to create (plan, implement, and evaluate) evidence-based health programs relevant to targeted populations and desired health outcomes.
  • Students will demonstrate professional conduct, and strong interpersonal skills in their chosen career path.
  • Students will be able to identify the specific challenges, and opportunities of improving health outcomes and reducing health disparities in diverse and urban environments.
