Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences

with a concentration in Rehabilitation Sciences

The Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences with a concentration in Rehabilitation Sciences prepares students for graduate school for various rehabilitation, exercise science, and health and fitness professions. The concentration is specifically designed for individuals seeking to apply to graduate programs in athletic training, occupational therapy and physical therapy. Students will have the ability to engage in their field of study through experiential learning with local healthcare organizations and facilities.

Rehabilitation Sciences Objectives

To be able to fulfill the requirements of a Bachelor Degree in Health Sciences with a concentration in Rehabilitation Sciences and promote the overall program goals, graduates of the Health Sciences degree at Indiana University South Bend will be able to:

  • Design improvement plans for health and fitness
  • Analyze aggregate exercise data to inform individuals and special populations of plans for health and fitness
  • Evaluate exercise outcomes in both health and special populations

Academic Advising

Students interested in pursing graduate school after graduation should plan to meet with the advising staff early in their academic career. Most graduate schools have varying pre-requisite requirements and the Rehabilitation Sciences concentration is not intended to cover the needs of all programs. Students should be responsible for examining the admission requirements for intended graduate programs and monitor the progression along with the advising staff.

Students can schedule an appointment with an advisor through the Student Appointment Scheduler (SAS) in One.IU.
