Fall 2022 freshmen enrolling at Seton Hall University can now take advantage of the school’s new Bachelor of Science in interprofessional health sciences program. The degree combines the benefit of a liberal arts education with pre-professional preparation in health sciences and health management practices.
“More than ever, the mounting health challenges we face in today’s world require the expertise of well-trained health care professionals in a wide array of fields,” Nina Capone Singleton, interim program director and associate professor, Department of Speech-Language Pathology, said. “Seton Hall’s new B.S. in IPHS program is designed to meet this demand by equipping students with a broad-based understanding of health sciences to address rapidly changing health care issues.”
Students can choose from three distinct concentrations — health sciences administration and management, exercise science, and pharmaceutical and health sciences marketing — and begin their academic journey with relevant interprofessional core classes, enhanced with a self-selected set of 27 electives from the larger university curriculum. They will graduate prepared to enter the workforce as health managers, patient advocates, wellness and fitness professionals, health data analysts, strength and conditioning specialists, or a multitude of other health-focused positions.
Located in the Department of Interprofessional Health Sciences and Health Administration, along with the Ph.D. in Health Sciences and Master of Healthcare Administration programs, the B.S. in IPHS program features instruction, research and support by faculty who are dedicated to the success of their students.
Enrollment for the upcoming school year remains open to graduating high school seniors through late August. Transfer students will be considered for admission beginning Fall 2023.
