Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences

A BS in Health Sciences provides students with a major that combines the student’s broad knowledge of U.S. healthcare with a student’s specific focus of study in the health sciences field. As many areas within the allied health arena move from an associate’s degree (AS) to a bachelor’s degree as the minimum educational requirement or the necessary degree for employee advancement, the Health Sciences degree provides the students with a degree that builds upon their degree.

The BS in Health Sciences at Regis College invests in students as life-long learners by challenging them to think critically and incorporate knowledge using an interdisciplinary approach. Students will actively engage in the study of health science as it relates to an array of societal and healthcare factors. This program allows students to take an individualized approach, developing a degree plan that focuses on specific areas of interest while incorporating a wide knowledge base related to the field of health science.

Bachelor of Science in Nursing

A BSN degree prepares nurses for better employment opportunities and professional satisfaction. The highly-skilled care a BSN prepared nurse provides has been shown to dramatically improve patient recovery rates.
