About HHS

The newly named College of Health and Human Sciences began July 1, 2023, with the merger of the College of Health Professions and the College of Human Sciences. We offer students paths to prepare for rewarding careers that help others improve their health and well-being. A rich history underpins the foundation for the new college, with some programs within the college offering classes since 1902.

The College of Health and Human Sciences includes more than 2,600 undergraduate and graduate students.

We offer programs in allied sciences such as respiratory care, medical lab science, and radiologic sciences; counselor education; health, nutrition, and exercise sciences; health services; human development and family science; nursing; pharmacy practice; pharmaceutical sciences; and public health. The college focuses on team-based education, offering undergraduate and graduate level degrees and certificates in multiple programs through on-site and online opportunities.

Expanded offerings within the new college provide students more opportunities to pursue careers in all aspects of health and human sciences. Undergraduate and graduate students have opportunities to engage in programs that cover the human lifespan as they explore, engage and gain experience to begin or to advance their careers.

Through interprofessional education, learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom, practicums, internships, research, clinical placements, and leadership growth through student organizations, students combine these experiences to become leaders in their field.
