Health Science Degree
For people seeking jobs in allied health—or for current allied health professionals interested in advancing—a quality bachelor’s degree is the key.
Nebraska Wesleyan is the only liberal arts university in the Omaha area to offer a Bachelor of Science in health science. Now is the time to earn your degree from a university that health care professionals trust.
Our objective is to prepare current and future allied health professionals with a strong foundation in scientific knowledge, critical thinking, teamwork and evidence-based problem solving.
We built our program to be flexible for working adults. That means weekly night classes that fit your schedule.
The program consists of 39-40 credit hours in the major plus 5-6 credit hours in related electives in health and human performance, psychology, communication studies or business administration.
Classes typically meet one night a week from 6-10:15 p.m. in five- and eight-week sessions.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that most allied health fields will soon require a baccalaureate education—particularly among those seeking promotions.
And the employment picture for these graduates is strong. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the health care industry will add millions of jobs—the most of any industry—by 2018.
Locally, Omaha’s hospitals and clinics regularly post open management positions for allied health professionals with bachelor’s degrees. And the Nebraska Department of Labor predicts 28 percent job growth for health and technical occupations in Omaha this decade.
