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.

The University of Minnesota Rochester offers students an unparalleled education, including an integrated, hands-on health sciences curriculum, personalized attention, and a learning experience that is truly one-of-a-kind. Immersed in the heart of one of the nation’s most health-focused communities, students engage with medical professionals on a daily basis and graduate prepared to transform knowledge into discovery in the ever-changing world of healthcare.

BSHS Faculty are deeply rooted in the health sciences and committed to developing our integrated curriculum. They work closely with colleagues in other fields, employing the highest-caliber teaching methods to transmit what is, truly, life-altering education.
