With the health profession growing in exciting directions each year, a bachelor's degree in health sciences opens the door to limitless career options and tracks. Health science professionals work in a variety of sites, including hospitals, clinics, medical offices and health-related businesses. They also work in education centers, pharmacies, sports arenas, wellness centers or in a patient’s home.
