Bachelor of Arts

Community Well-being (BA)

If you are intending to pursue a career outside clinical practice, consider a Bachelor of Arts in Health and Well-being.

The foundation coursework will be the same as the Bachelor of Science. However, students in the Bachelor of Arts track will take classes that are focused on community health promotion and individual lifestyle management. Students are encouraged to supplement their plan of study using available areas of emphasis or minors.
