The Bradley Advantage

Bradley’s general health science major develops your mind and heart through classroom study, hands-on experiences built into courses and encouraged participation in Bradley’s many extracurricular activities. Major courses are concentrated in science and social science. The program includes a minor of your choice, which gives you the chance to explore science, business, family and consumer sciences, health, sociology, foreign languages or other related interests. You learn in professional environments such as local hospitals and public school districts. You also receive academic and career guidance through Bradley's Health Professions Advising Center.

Successful Outcomes

The versatile health science degree successfully prepares you to enter the workforce or to pursue a graduate degree. Half of recent graduates opted for graduate school in occupational therapy, physician assistant studies and Bradley’s doctorate of physical therapy. The other half found jobs within six months of graduation. They’re working for companies like Eli Lilly and Company, Northwell Health and the YMCA.

Peoria

Bradley and Peoria share much in common--a diverse population, world-class research facilities, outstanding fine arts and entertainment, and a great sense of community. In this regard, Peoria simultaneously offers the urban benefits of a big city and the personality of a small town.
