Advising on Health Related Majors

If you are looking for more information about health-interested student support, you've come to the right place!

What health related majors are available at UW Oshkosh?


UW-Oshkosh comprises four Colleges, all of which have programs related to Healthcare as indicated below.  Because most Healthcare professional schools have no preference for any particular undergraduate major, students en route to professional schools are not restricted to any particular undergraduate major.

College of Business (COB)

Bachelor of Business Administration - Healthcare Emphasis

Masters of Business Administration - Healthcare Management emphasis 


College of Education & Human Services (COEHS)

 Physical Education degrees through the Department of Human Kinetics & Health Education

College of Letters & Science (COLS)

Bachelor of Science in Biology 

Bachelor of Science in Chemistry 

Bachelor of Science in Environmental Health

Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology 

Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology

Bachelor of Science in Microbiology

Bachelor of Science in Psychology 

College of Nursing (CON)

Traditional and Accelerated Online Bachelor of Science in Nursing

Master of Science in Nursing and Doctor of Nursing Practice

Pre-Health (Pre-Med, Pre-Vet, Pre-Dentistry) is not a major at UW Oshkosh

You may be ANY major in college and be competitive for admission to a Health Profession school.

Professional programs of study in the health care field DO NOT specify what majors incoming students should have.

They DO require that certain prerequisite courses be completed and (usually) that an entrance exam be passed satisfactorily.

Because the content of the entrance exams generally included Chemisty and Biology, those are the two majors most often chosen by college students following any PreHealth track.

So pick a major in an area you love and do quality work!
