Bachelor of Science in Applied Health Science

Do you enjoy science and have a heart for helping others but just aren’t sure what aspect of the medical field is the right path for you? TROY’s Bachelor of Science in Applied Health Science will provide you with training and options that can open a multitude of opportunities for future careers in the medical profession.

Consider your options

Within TROY’s applied health science program, you’ll have the opportunity to focus on four areas of knowledge and skill. The core of the program—based within the study of nursing—will create a firm foundation for any future health-related field you choose to enter. You may also choose to learn and explore within the applied health science program’s three other concentrations in the areas of communication, nutrition and humanities to further develop your area of interest in the medical profession. An additional option, as you work your way through the program, will be to pursue a degree in nursing by applying to the nursing school with the proper GPA and required course completion.

Prepared for success

Led by skilled and knowledgeable faculty members, your course work within all four areas of study will ready you for a career focused on people’s health—whether you teach in an agency, work in an office or serve the public in hospitals and clinics. Your coursework will not only teach you about human anatomy and psychology, but you’ll also learn ways to communicate professionally and effectively within different environments and conditions. Your time will also be spent learning aspects of nutrition and health behavior, as well as sharpening your knowledge and understanding of human behavior and the importance of ethics within the health sciences industry.
