Undergraduate Programs

Our students, faculty and staff all share a singular focus on strengthening UMR's educational experience through research and practical application.

Passion and energy permeate the University of Minnesota Rochester

It's a place where forward-thinking faculty and students work to better the world. But take away the dynamic campus, the upscale residences, the nearby shops and cafes, and you're left with traditional college life: the electric excitement that signals knowledge being discovered, minds being shaped and lives being changed.

The University of Minnesota Rochester offers two baccalaureate degree programs. The first is the Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences (BSHS), a foundational undergraduate degree that allows students to pursue a wide range of careers in the health sciences. It also prepares students to continue their education in medical school or other professional programs.

The BSHS program includes Early Assurance and Accelerated Programs.

The second major offered at UMR is the Bachelor of Science in Health Professions (BSHP), an education collaboration with the Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences. Students in this program become skilled health care professionals in the fields of radiography, sonography, echocardiography and respiratory care.
