The College of Health Sciences is TU’s newest college, bringing together the School of Nursing, a physician assistant program, and the Departments of Athletic Training, Exercise & Sports Science and Communication Disorders. Additionally, the college houses TU’s faculty of Community Medicine and will advance the university’s strong partnership with the Laureate Institute for Brain Research.
Interdisciplinary study is key to the College of Health Sciences, where students and faculty are encouraged to collaborate with other departments – and even other colleges – to find solutions. Health Sciences students can learn from their peers in engineering, law, psychology, computer science and business.
Off campus, representatives from the college are encouraged to make a difference in the community where healthcare needs are many. Service learning is an important facet of a TU education, and Health Sciences is an field where a university can be a change agent.
