Welcome to Brooks College of Health

The Brooks College of Health offers a range of undergraduate and graduate programs in health administration, nursing, nutrition, exercise science, physical therapy, mental health counseling and public health. An integral part of each of these programs is the emphasis on quality time in clinical and community settings, the use of up-to-date technologies in our classrooms and laboratories, our innovative faculty and student research and experimental learning. Students who study with us learn how to deliver care with high levels of skill.
