How long is the health science program

University of the People offers two undergraduate programs in Health Science: An Associate’s degree and a Bachelor’s degree. These are generally completed in 2 or 4 years respectively, but you can complete them in half of the time.


The Health Science degree program at UoPeople prepares our students to work in the emerging health care world. With a degree in Health Science, job opportunities are numerous and vast in terms of where you can work.


Some workplaces within the field include: schools, hospitals, government agencies, administration, non-profit organizations, research labs, and rehabilitation facilities. Please note that UoPeople does not train nurses because we are unable to provide in-person on the ground practice.
