The Bachelor of Arts and Science in Health is a four-year degree that takes an interdisciplinary approach to health and draws on scientific, social and humanistic knowledge. Students will learn to think about a health in different ways than previously taught and that much of health is determined by factors outside of ourselves and our physiology.
