The College of Health Sciences was established in 1980 and enrolled its first students in the Physician Assistant Program in 1981. The college has continued to grow since that time and now offers two Doctor of Physical Therapy programs (entry level and post professional) and master’s degrees in physician assistant sciences, health care administration, and public health. The faculty has grown in order to provide low student to faculty ratios in support of the over 600 face-to-face and on-line students enrolled annually in the college.
