What do they do?
Health science students are trained for many different jobs in the medical field. From pharmaceutics to sports medicine, they study the body and learn exactly how to treat it. They dissect different organs that come from animals, such as sheep, and get a close look at the blue prints of the organs. The majors also learn a great deal about the way the senses work by playing games and doing tests that take away certain senses and leave you with only a select few.
Health science majors also learn how to take care of injuries. A career in sports medicine allows them to take care and prevent injuries of athletes.
How do you audition?
Students interested in health science first attend an enrollment seminar. Then, they are given a packet to fill out, told to write a one page essay introducing themselves, and explaining why they want to be a health science major, and also told to create a portfolio containing any previous health science or athletic experience they have previously had. Next, they take a learning style test at an interview, and finally have a one on one interview.
