The College of Health Sciences is organized into two academic departments and three schools, including the Department of Communication Sciences and Oral Health, the School of Health Promotion and Kinesiology, the Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences, the School of Occupational Therapy, and the School of Physical Therapy. Students may pursue bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees within the College.

Academic programs within the College of Health Sciences prepare women and men to apply the natural sciences for health careers. These programs develop practitioners, scholars, administrators, and researchers who focus their work on health promotion, prevention of illness, and rehabilitation of health-related problems. Multidisciplinary studies that encourage collaboration among the faculty and students characterize the academic environment of the College.

Persons seeking careers in teaching Health Education, Physical Education, or Education of the Deaf may enroll in academic majors within Health Sciences and pursue a teacher certification program in the College of Professional Education to complete entry-level requirements for teaching. 

Major undergraduate sequences leading to baccalaureate degrees are described in the introductory sections of the departments. Practical work experiences in Health Sciences in the form of practica, internships, clinicals, and cooperative education assignments are available as part of planned degree programs.
