New Student Orientation

Looking for a pre-medical, pre-dental or other professional degree program? This major combines basic science knowledge with clinical applications. You'll have access to state-of-the-art facilities and the only accredited Aquatic Therapy program in the U.S.

Health Informatics and Information Management

Do you enjoy technology, business and science? HIIM draws on each of these fields to make sure patients’ vital health information is complete, accurate and protected.

Immunology and Medical Microbiology

Our program is the only one of its kind in West Virginia and surrounding states. If you are interested in a career in healthcare, research, biosafety or biotechnology, consider the BS in Immunology and Medical Microbiology.

Medical Laboratory Science

Do you want a bachelor’s degree that prepares you for immediate employment? The national shortage of medical laboratory scientists means our students typically have jobs waiting for them when they graduate.
