Health & Human Studies
Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies
The healthcare and social assistance industry is projected to account for over one-third of total job growth in the U.S. over the next decade (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). You can be a part of this rapidly expanding profession and work in settings such as health care facilities, government agencies, or non-profit organizations.
Students in the Health and Human Studies program take a core of required courses that provide a foundation for understanding health, communication, ethics, and social policy. In addition, students select a track of courses relating to their specific interests, such as children and families or health and wellness. Your Academic Advisor provides guidance and mentoring as you proceed in the program, and a required internship provides a rich experience to practice your compassion, communication, and organizational skills. An option for students interested in research is Bay Path’s Summer Scholars program. And our unique Women as Empowered Learners and Leaders (WELL) program offers strategies for career preparation and self-leadership to help you discover your passion and purpose and create the path that’s right for you.
You are an important bridge between clients and health and human services organizations. The work settings are varied, but the areas you will be called upon to offer your expertise include primary healthcare, mental illness, elderly services, and even rehabilitation facilities.
