Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences (B.S.)

Explore your role as a healthcare provider in light of your relationship with Jesus Christ.

The Health Sciences major at Colorado Christian University gives you a foundation for further professional or graduate study in several health related fields including nursing, physical therapy, physician's assistant, and pharmaceuticals, among others. All CCU majors are required to take general education courses in the arts, humanities, and social sciences (which is also advised by the American Medical Association). Whether you plan to go into nursing, dentistry, or medical imaging, you'll be prepared both scientifically and culturally to engage with your patients.

Offered through the School of Science and Engineering, the Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences prepares students for further professional or graduate study in several health related fields, but is not a substitute for them. For students planning to continue on to graduate school, it is important to be aware of the health sciences course sequence in order to stay on track and graduate in four years.

About the School of Science and Engineering

In the School of Science and Engineering at Colorado Christian University, character forms the bedrock of God-honoring and kingdom-building science. We aim to help our students explore the world that God created, use cutting-edge technology, and discover how faith interacts with questions that arise out of studying science. We focus on teaching our students how to articulate a Christian perspective on issues such as bioethics, ecology, and human life.

Science and engineering programs are taught within the world of ideas, synthesizing the liberal arts, advanced theories, and applied technology. Our faculty intentionally seek out ways to hone a Christ-like character in our students, inspiring them to become moral and ethical, world-changing leaders. Purposefully small classes and laboratories invite students to learn with their hands as well as their minds. This instills a level of mastery necessary to become a leader in rapidly-advancing fields of science and engineering.
