Course Overview

Health and Medicine focus on the treatment of sickness, disease, illness, and ultimately, the well-being of humans and animals. As one of the most secure and vast fields, undergraduate studies - even more so graduate studies - in medicine can open you up to a world of possibilities, many of which require extensive study in their own right. If you're looking to save lives and make a difference, there are few careers more capable of doing that than a career in Health and Medicine.

Although the field of Health and Medicine has a common overarching focus, there are many subfields that focus on individual aspects of health. Pursuing a career in Health and Medicine allows you to pursue careers such as being a doctor, nurse, psychiatrist, veterinarian, and many more. The needs of humans and animals are vast, and the types of medical professionals needed to meet those needs are just as great.

Coursework for health and medicine follows largely different paths, but common majors for these fields include:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Biochemistry
  • Physics
  • Psychology
