The Health Science study generally prepares students for a career that promotes health, wellness and diagnosis, and treats injuries and diseases.

Some fields under health sciences involve working directly with people, while others involve research into diseases or collecting and formatting data and information. Health research, for instance, as a sub-field of health sciences, has high value to society. It can provide important information about disease trends and risk factors, outcomes of treatment or public health interventions, functional abilities, patterns of care, and health care costs and use.

Depending on the level of entry, health science students do study health and disease in the human body, in varying depths and scope. Students in health science major are prepared to work in a variety of health-related careers and settings and to pursue graduate-level education.
