Health Sciences

Students participate in health science-related experiences to understand future employment opportunities in this growing sector of the economy. In addition to their coursework in AP Psychology and Human Anatomy, students can earn certification as a certified nursing assistant or emergency medical responder. This certification gives students advanced training and a jump-start in the field of health care.

Students receive regular guest instruction and attend site visits with health science leaders such as the University of Minnesota, Children’s Minnesota and Excelen Center for Bone & Joint Research. Students gain a firm understanding of psychology and the human system, including a generalist view of the many professions available as a prospective health care professional. This program is offered to juniors and seniors.
