Professional Electives Policy: Core curricula of CPHS degree programs may require professional elective courses
that permit exploration of and/or advanced study in areas of professional interest within the student’s primary degree.
Professional electives provide the student with an opportunity to not only pursue areas of intellectual interest, but also to
develop an individual “brand” that may benefit them in their professional or academic future. Students who desire to have
a non-approved electives count toward professional elective credit should apply for an exception to program policy prior to
taking the course whenever possible. Professional electives must be taken for a grade unless the course is designed as
credit/no credit. Students should refer to their degree audit for determination of the total number of required professional
electives. Students should review the student
handbook for the complete professional elective policy and details specific to their degree program.
The BS in Health Sciences degree is earned following the completion of all Master’s degree requirements.
