Elevated health. Epic life.
Health Science Program
Empower others to live life to the fullest – just as God designed. That’s health science, at NGU.
Epic Life Depends on Everyday Decisions
And it takes someone like you, a health fanatic, to help others make the right decisions. From individual nutrition and fitness, to community-wide behavioral change, countless careers promote an elevated view of health.
Athletic trainer. Chiropractor. Nurse. Nutritionist. Physical or occupational therapist. Strength and conditioning professional. Even speech pathologist. Push the limits of your future with a health science degree from NGU.
Experience Learning While Staying Active
The Best Way to Learn is to Do
Not all internships are created equal. Office memos and coffee runs aren’t what you signed up. So, leave the 9-to-5 behind as you complete an intensive, 375-hour internship in your chosen area of study. It’s hands-on experience designed to launch your career to the next level.
Health Fair (Because You Care)
Each spring, NGU’s Health Science Department organizes a health fair on campus. Serve your NGU family and our local community. Invite local vendors to provide health screenings. Analyze these efforts and help maximize their impact on the health of our region.
On Your Mark, Get Set, Inspire!
Want to gain experience organizing a health-based event while encouraging your peers to get active? We’ve got you! Each fall, help coordinate NGU’s “Feel the Hill” 5K. Plan, promote, and operate a community health initiative without leaving campus.
Health Science Beside Experienced & Faithful Scientists
Study Health Science in a Useful Sequence
Elevate Your Perspective
You’ll also take Chapel every semester, and Cultural Events for the first four semesters. You earn credit through attendance, and each course counts as half a credit. This is the NGU difference, how you find your peak performance and elevate your perspective, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
