Bright Prognosis for Health Careers
Students interested in healthcare find Stonehill’s emphasis on internships, research, liberal arts and advising gives them a distinct advantage in this competitive field.
Meet Robert, a Religious Studies major intending to go to health professions school.
Hear how Stonehill is helping him attain his dream of helping others.
Students pursuing a career in health or allied health usually major in one of the sciences (biochemistry, biology, chemistry or neuroscience). However, a major in a nonscience discipline is certainly a viable option.
While a student’s success ultimately comes down to his or her commitment, perseverance, drive and academic ability, Stonehill offers a challenging curriculum and quality practical experiences as well as experienced, talented and accessible faculty and advisors dedicated to helping students achieve their goals.
Stonehill College has developed agreements with colleges and universities that enable our students to augment the degree they earn at Stonehill with graduate degrees that further enhance their opportunities. Partnerships of benefit to pre-health professions students include:
- Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences University
- New England College of Optometry
