Health Studies Program Outcomes

Fairleigh Dickinson University believes the goal of a college education is preparation for lifelong learning and a lifetime of thoughtful living. Health Studies student learning is embedded within an interdisciplinary core curriculum that strongly emphasizes global learning and personal/professional development, and supports student development of information literacy competencies. A robust general education curriculum guides students to develop the skills, intellectual orientation, and knowledge to achieve their educational, professional, and personal goals. Additional coursework focusing on health and health care further prepare Health Studies graduates to:

  1. Apply principles of social justice and strive for health equity.
  2. Effectively transmit basic health knowledge to the public.
  3. Engage in health-related service at the local, regional, and/or global levels.
  4. Interpret and apply ethical principles and values in the realm of health care.
