The College of Health Professions
The need for highly qualified health professionals with advanced degrees is at an all-time high. The mission of the College of Health Professions is to provide exceptional graduate learning experiences in a wide range of health care professions that promote and enhance health and well-being. Emphasis is placed on theory-based applications for practice, education, management and research that will prepare graduates to assume roles in a variety of educational, clinical, and community settings.
The college offers doctoral, master’s and graduate certificate programs. We are committed to the key values of lifelong learning, excellence, ethical and moral conduct, and collaboration and respect for the worth and dignity of all people. Graduates are expected to exhibit the highest ethical principles and professional behaviors in the application of knowledge and critical thinking, and are proficient in the use of skills, effective communication and technology. Internships, clinical experiences and/or independent studies provide opportunities to supplement and enhance each student’s academic course work. Students have ready access to an outstanding array of opportunities in the many health care, educational, community, and professional organizations in the surrounding area.
Graduate programs in the college are accredited by appropriate professional and educational agencies, thus enabling the successful graduate to sit for their professional licensure or certification exam where those credentialing mechanisms exist.
