BA in Health, Society, and Policy


The BA in Health, Society, & Policy (HESP) might be for you!

HESP’s interdisciplinary curriculum is ideal for students who are interested in learning about health from a variety of perspectives, or who want to work in health-related fields, but not necessarily in a hospital or clinic. We provide a robust foundation in social sciences, history, and philosophy, plus a variety of complementary electives that range from chemistry and communication to psychology and Spanish.

With strong skills in writing, communication, analysis, and cultural competency, our graduates come away well prepared to enter a variety of graduate and professional programs (e.g., public health, occupational therapy, health-sociology, other social sciences), or to work in human service fields within the health industry. This includes careers in community health, health behavior, pastoral care, and public health, which are on trend to become the fastest growing fields in the healthcare industry.
