Future First-Year Student
Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences
The University of Minnesota Rochester offers one major for incoming high school students, a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences degree. UMR's Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences degree will prepare students for everything pre-health. Discover some of those opportunities on the Career Paths page. In the fast-moving world of health sciences, overlap is constant and change is inevitable. Rather than segregate health care topics, the Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences weaves them across natural and social sciences, math, arts, and humanities for an approach that deepens understanding and sharpens problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
