Health Sciences Online Degree Completion Program

UVM’s online Health Sciences degree completion program is designed for undergraduates and working adults who have completed at least one year of college or an associate degree but who have not previously completed a baccalaureate degree. This unique program prepares students for careers in a variety of healthcare fields through a core curriculum that integrates social, behavioral and analytical areas of health science.

Students may pursue health-related interests through thoughtful selection of their remaining distribution electives. For example, students interested in fields such as medicine, occupational or physical therapy, nursing, athletic training, pharmacy, public health or other graduate programs work with their academic and pre-health advisors to incorporate the recommended requirements into their curriculum plans.  Upon completion of the Health Sciences program, students will have practiced foundational skills that are transferable to entry-level employment or professional and graduate academic programs.

Jobs available to health sciences graduates include:

  • Health benefits navigator
  • Global health program associate
  • Policy analyst
  • Health educator
  • Research assistant
  • Health communication associate
  • Disease prevention specialist
