The College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) offers 10 bachelor degree programs for students interested in the health and human services fields of athletic training; public health; exercise science; physical education and health teaching licensure; recreation, sport leadership and tourism management; recreation therapy; nursing (prelicensure and RN to BS); clinical research; and social work.
The CHHS offers four master degree programs for students interested in the health and human services fields of applied gerontology (M.S.); clinical research and product development (M.S); nursing (MSN with options in family nurse practitioner and nurse educator); and social work (MSW).
Beginning Fall 2016, the CHHS will offer a post-master's Doctor of Nursing Practice degree (pending approval by SACSCOC), with plans to expand the program to a post-bachelor's DNP in Fall 2018.
We also offer four graduate certificates in applied gerontology, nurse practitioner, nursing education and substance use disorders and addictions.
Student success is at the heart of what the CHHS is about. We understand that students come from a variety of backgrounds, bringing with them a diversity of strengths. The CHHS supports its students and alumni with a Student Success Center (SSC), offering services that include student recruitment, admissions and student progression; academic and career advising; clinical, field and internship placement; graduate school preparation, and other services to assist students and alumni as appropriate. The SSC also includes the Student Learning Commons, a space devoted to students in their learning activities outside of the classroom.
Student involvement is a valuable part of the CHHS experience. Students can get involved in a variety of ways: from the Dean's Student Leadership Council to CHHS majors clubs and HHS-related clubs, there is something for everyone.
