Your Journey to Health

By majoring in Health Sciences, students complete individualized coursework designed to prepare them for admission into graduate programs in the health field of their choice. This is an ideal major for students with dreams of pursuing a career in a health field. Guilford’s pre-professional programs — Pre-Medicine, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Physician Assistant, Pre-Physical Therapy and Pre-Veterinary Medicine — prepare students to go on to graduate school in their preferred health field or to enter the workforce in other health professions.  

The B.S. in Health Sciences is an interdisciplinary major that requires students to select courses from at least two of the following disciplines:

Students will also take a Health Sciences Seminar, designed to support the professional goals of Health Sciences majors by helping with the graduate school application process.

Major/minor requirements and course descriptions are available in the online version of the Guilford College Catalog. Use the keyboard shortcuts Control F for PC or Command F for Mac to search the document for your program.
