About Us

All Integrated Health Studies (IHS) majors take a core of courses that relate to health studies. The core consists of courses that focus on medical terminology, careers in health sciences and human services, research design and statistical methods for the health professions, health care ethics, health care policy and delivery systems, quantitative statistics, a writing intensive course, and a professional seminar experience at the end of the program. The program may culminate in a 3-10 credit hour practicum in a setting consistent with the students' career goals. A seminar class accompanies the practicum to address topics related to the practicum experience.
