Health Science (BSHS)

As a UD Health Science major, you'll start on the path towards a career related to health and medicine. You'll pursue an in-depth study in your area of concentration, choosing from one of three options:

  • Integrative Physiology: For individuals interested in professional schools, such as Physician Assistant, Medical or other graduate programs in Biosciences and Health Sciences.
  • Exercise & Movement Science: For individuals interested in Physical Therapy, Orthotic and Prosthetic, Athletic Training programs, or other related fields of study.
  • Occupational & Behavioral Studies: For individuals interested in Occupational Therapy, Behavior Therapy, or accelerated Nursing programs.

All three concentrations typically require additional schooling — either at the graduate or doctoral level — after earning a bachelor's degree. No matter which concentration you choose, you'll receive innovative, hands-on experience through community physical education programs, student-led organizations, and research with faculty & peers.
