Health Science B.S. + Health Informatics M.S.
Better information for better health
Technologies such as electronic health records can save lives and help people manage their medical care. To take care of these records responsibly takes expertise in how to collect, analyze and safeguard patient information.
Learn how people and information systems intersect in the world of medicine. You’ll acquire skills that will allow you to utilize information as a tool to help provide health care safely and efficiently, enabling clinical teams to serve more patients.
How it works
You’ll apply for the accelerated program in the sixth semester of your B.S. or when you have successfully completed your first five semesters—75 credit hours—with a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.25 or higher. The School of Informatics and Computing will waive all application fees.
Bachelor and master degrees are conferred independently.
