Purpose and Focus

The Division of Health Sciences was established to provide academic programs leading to professional specialization within the health care industry. Successful completion of the student’s chosen academic program will provide the graduate with the knowledge and skills necessary to compete in the health care industry in a variety of settings. Curricular offerings within the division provide the student with a foundation in the liberal arts and sciences. Each health science discipline emphasizes the development of professional competence through course work that stresses the theoretical as well as the clinical aspects of the chosen field. Each of the curricular offerings within the division provides students the opportunity to practice their chosen discipline in a wide variety of clinical agencies in the Las Vegas community. The dynamic growing health care industry in Southern Nevada is receptive to the students and to UNLV graduates.
