Health Sciences

Degree options that propel your health-care career

As a student in one of our health sciences programs, you will find yourself within walking distance to four of Indiana’s leading hospitals. You will benefit from a partnership with the IU School of Medicine, the nation’s largest medical school, have the opportunity to work with cutting-edge researchers, design a program that fits your interests and areas of inquiry, and have access to 400-plus community and clinical partnerships.

As a SHHS graduate student in the health sciences department, your experience as a student will be as unique as your own passions and goals. From complementary and integrative health approaches to research to research on non-pharmacological pain reduction, research activities in the Department of Health Sciences are as diverse as the programs we offer.

You can examine health-related behaviors and motivations, ways to improve care access and delivery, musculoskeletal health, and more. Many students conduct research in their field and have opportunities to publish or present at state and national conferences.
