This is the preliminary (or launch) version of the 2021-2022 VCU Bulletin. This edition includes all programs and courses approved by the publication deadline; however we may receive notification of additional program approvals after the launch.

The health science concentration is designed for students who wish to enter a health care-related field (that does not require licensure, certification or registry status) such as corporate wellness, human services, nonprofit health promotion and medical and pharmaceutical sales. Graduates holding a degree with a concentration in health science can also be qualified to enter either graduate or professional health science programs, such as public health, health education and promotion, physical therapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy, nursing, speech-language pathology, audiology, radiation safety, clinical laboratory science and health care administration.
