Concord University adding new health sciences major

ATHENS, WV (WOAY) – Concord University is introducing a Health Sciences major for the Fall 2020 semester. With this new academic program, students can earn a bachelor’s degree that puts them on track for a career in allied health-related fields and admission to graduate programs.

“The program was conceptualized as an avenue for Concord University to continue to meet the needs of the region, specifically preparing students for work in allied health-related fields and to help students meet admission criteria for various allied health-related graduate programs,” stated Dr. David Campbell, Chair of the Department of Health Sciences.

“Students enrolled in the B.S. in Health Science program can choose four different degree pathways that most closely align with their professional and educational goals,” he said. “Degree tracks include pre-physical therapy, pre-athletic training, exercise science, and pre-professional studies.”
