The Department of Health Sciences at Towson University offers undergraduate programs in allied health, applied adult disabilities, gerontology, health care management, and health science.
The Allied Health Major is a unique transfer-based program of study for students who have completed an Applied Associate of Science (A.A.S.) degree in an allied health field at a community college. The bachelor’s degree program is based upon students’ clinical skills, and complements that foundation with learning geared to advanced positions within the broader health care industry.
The Gerontology Major provides a comprehensive study of aging, which includes issues related to health, economics, policy, ethics and culture.
The Health Care Management Major combines an understanding of business principles with the rapidly changing health care delivery system.
The Department of Health Sciences offers three concentrations in the Health Education and Promotion Major: school health concentration (enrollment suspended), community health concentration, and a school and community health (dual) concentration (enrollment suspended).

Placements for completing the internship will be approved and assigned by program coordinators, pending student completion of stipulated requirements for the respective concentration.
