The mission of DePaul University’s Department of Health Sciences is to educate and train students who will collaboratively address human health from interdisciplinary natural and social scientific perspectives in order to promote health and to improve the lives of individuals and communities.

The Health Sciences major offers concentrations in BioScience and Public Health Sciences that will enable future health care professionals to begin this cross-disciplinary conversation even earlier.  Each concentration offers tracks that help students focus their interests and prepare for future careers. This degree a) provides students interested in pursuing a career in one of many health-related professions with a common core of knowledge; b) provides a general track in each concentration but also articulates additional tracks that meet requirements for entry into graduate programs; c) provides enough flexibility to enable students to move among those tracks as their interests evolve, and d) brings students headed for multiple health-related professions into on-going conversation with each other.
