Honors Sciences and the Humanities, B.S.: Medicine, Global Health, and the Humanities Concentration


About the Honors Sciences and the Humanities, B.S. Program


The Bachelor of Science degree (B.S.) in Honors Sciences & the Humanities (HSH) with a concentration in Medicine, Global Health, and the Humanities is designed for capable, curious students who are interested in pursuing a broad and challenging course of study that will prepare them for a variety of careers and a lifetime of active citizenship. The degree encourages pre-med Honors students to broaden their educational experiences in order to become more competitive applicants to medical schools and eventually more employable professionals. While targeted to a pre-med audience, it could also have relevance to other Honors students pursuing related pre-health occupations (i.e., nursing school, physician’s assistant studies, healthcare administration). Through a profound exploration of the intersections between health, healing, and the humanities, graduates will be able to better communicate the compassion, creativity, and innovation of scientific thinking in humanistic terms. Many university graduates change careers several times during their lives, and the field of medicine is not exempt from this reality. Therefore, this degree also emphasizes marketable skills that are portable, such as critical thinking, writing, and problem solving, that ready students for a broad range of career options.
