The Health Sciences degree program is one of the largest and the fastest growing program at Cal State East Bay.  It is an applied science that focuses on knowledge and skills necessary to practice in both clinical and population health settings. Students in our Health Sciences program prepare for careers in healthcare administration and policy, public health or prepare for further training in technical or professional clinical programs. Health sciences is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on the application of physical, biological, and social sciences to understand and to improve health in human beings.

Healthcare as an industry is anticipated to become one of the largest employers in the United States in the next ten years with healthcare support and technical occupations being two fastest growing labor groups. There are hundreds of job opportunities and areas of practice in this field. A degree in Health Sciences from CSUEB provides the foundation graduates need to participate in this exciting and growing field.

Department of Health Sciences emphasizes health policy, public health and environmental health. Rooted in principles of solidarity, health equity, and social justice, the program values an interdisciplinary approach that emphasizes teamwork, problem solving, adaptability, ethics and strong evidence-based practice.
