Pursuing a degree in Health Sciences was the best thing I could've done. This program aligns you with a admin professional who direct you along the way to graduate on time. Not too often do you see a university that cares as much as BSU does. I was enrolled in a "finish in 4" program and I can guarantee you it has lived up to its name.
