The Bachelor of Health Sciences offers students an excellent foundation in health sciences as well as liberal arts and basic sicences. It is designed to prepare graduates for entry-level administrative positions in private and public sectors ofhealth care. Broadly educated students with knowledge of contemporary health care issues and services are ready for employment in the pharmaceutical industry, medical centers, clinics, community health centers, government health departments, fitness and wellness centers, and the health insurance industry. In addition, graduates may pursue advanced studies leading to careers in  occupational therapy, physical therapy, physician assistant studies, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, speech language pathology, health information management and other health related professions or business.

Our faculty are accomplished health professionals across a multitude of disciplines who possess a passion for teaching. Their experiences, participation in professional organizations, and cutting-edge research across local, national and international venues will impact how you think about health. Pre-health career advisement is ongoing throughout the student's stay at NYIT: Students in the Bachelor of Health Sciences program have the opportunity early on to discuss with their advisor their possible career paths to ascertain that electives taken as part of the program be matched to anticipated future employment and/or requirements of expected graduate study.

Students are introduced to the health professions through our course, Community Health Implications. Exposure to the myriad of health professions is given in Professional and Cultural Issues in Health Care  where representatives from several health disciplines visit the class and give students an opportunity to ask questions. Introduction to Clinical Nutrition Practice gives our majors a firm foundation in this increasingly important subject area. Our more advanced courses include study of Medical Terminology, Medical Ethics, Health Information Management, and Health Care Payment Systems. Senior year includes a two-semester practicum where students work 60 hours over the course of the semester in a health care setting with support from a course leader. The mandatory interaction with our Department of Career Services for this course assures that students develop professional skills in writing resumes, seeking appropriate positions, interviewing and learining appropriate workplace behavior.

Upon completion of the program, students receive a B.S. in Health Sciences degree.
