Health Sciences

Brian Miller, Program Director

The health sciences major at Mary Baldwin University provides students with an interdisciplinary, liberal arts foundation in the natural and social sciences in order to prepare them for graduate programs in healthcare. The health sciences major combines the long-standing strengths of the undergraduate liberal arts program with the health sciences expertise of faculty within the Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences. The interdisciplinary nature of this major enables students to understand human health as a complex cultural, biological, psychological, and social dynamic.

Students in this major should consult with the health sciences advisor regarding graduate program prerequisites to ensure that courses will fulfill requirements needed to be admitted to graduate programs in healthcare. Additionally, there are 3- and 4-year plans available that have been structured specifically with the required prerequisites for students interested in physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant, chiropractic, dental and medical school.
