Health Science Major

The Health Sciences major at Grace College prepares motivated students for health-related graduate education in their specialty of interest.  Grace faculty employ a rigorous curriculum and individual advising to equip students for successful application to graduate programs in their health profession, as well as success in that graduate program and in their future career in medicine.

At the heart of the Health Sciences major is the scientific study of life and life processes.  Students study the molecular composition, metabolic processes, and micro and macro anatomy of a variety of life, focusing on humans. Laboratory activities are emphasized to explore technical details of these processes first-hand. A solid background in chemistry, physics, mathematics, and behavioral science rounds out preparation of the student to be a successful candidate in their graduate health professions program.

The Grace curriculum acknowledges God as the creator and sustainer of all life.  Students will gain a much deeper appreciation of the incredible complexity of God’s living handiwork while being prepared with excellence for further schooling and future careers.
