Health Science

Health science works with both human and animal health. Health science has two branches the study, research, and knowledge of health and the application of that knowledge to improve health, cure diseases, and understanding how humans and animals function. The use of technology in Highland’s health science courses and collaborative relationships will give you an education that will open doors to many job focus areas.

Career Field

Health science graduates typically go on to work in public health departments, health care administration, social work, case management, and behavioral health.

Communication and interpersonal skills are important as most positions in the health sciences require interaction with patients and other health professionals. Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, are essential.
