School of Health Sciences & Education
Truman students seek depth and breadth in their studies, and the programs in the School of Health Sciences and Education (SHSE) allow our students to discover connections across a wide range of endeavors.
We prepare intellectual and curious students for careers in:
- health science
- exercise science
- communication disorders
- athletic training
- K-12 teaching
- and others
Many of our graduates enter medical school, teach abroad, begin private practices, and devote their talents and energies in various ways to making the world a better place.
All of our programs are based on a solid foundation in the liberal arts and sciences. That foundation, coupled with the specific professional preparation you will receive in our programs, will serve you well in whatever path you take in life.
