The degree program is based on competencies thought to be fundamental for careers in the health professions. These competencies include communication skills, use and knowledge of technology, awareness and respect for the roles of members of the health care team, ability to navigate in the health care system, scientific knowledge, life-long learning skills, and critical thinking skills. Because of the rigorous science-based core all majors prepare students to take advantage of the many career options the healthcare field offers.
