It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Department of Health Studies webpage. It is your career interests that brought you here. Therefore, whether you already have had a two-year associate degree or you are just starting out, our bachelor of science programs could be the right choice for you in your journey of learning and towards advancing your career in health sciences field.
The Department of Health Studies at Chicago State University offers Bachelor of Science degree programs in Community Health and in Pre-Physical Therapy programs, and a minor in Health Sciences. These programs are designed to prepare graduates for employment as professionals in health-related fields and to provide a foundation for personal growth. The degrees also offer a strong base for those wishing to pursue graduate work in public health and/or physical therapy fields. Our faculty provides students with quality learning experiences, professional preparation and promotion of excellence in learning, application of cutting-edge technology in teaching, scholarship, and community service.
The Bachelor of Science curricula draw heavily from a sound knowledge of liberal arts, the medical sciences, communication, health education and psychology. The curricula are a model of interdisciplinary education because it entails courses from various departments within and outside of the College of Health Sciences. The curricula permit the close interaction of students enrolled in other health science disciplines (pre-occupational therapy, nursing and health information administration), thereby enhancing the students ability to function together as members of a health care delivery team.
