Brooks College of Health Overview

Dean's Message

Thank you for your interest in the Brooks College of Health (BCH)! You will find graduates of our college throughout the greater Jacksonville area and beyond. Employers in this region continue to seek out BCH students due to our reputation as a premiere educator of healthcare professionals dedicated to serving the community. Our college provides specialized programming in a wide range of health care fields including Nursing, Public Health, Mental Health Counseling, Health Administration, Kinesiology, Athletic Training, Physical Therapy, and Nutrition. Our reputation is further enhanced via our Centers, as well as by our recent awards and national rankings.

The cornerstones of a BCH education at the University of North Florida are the hands-on experiences in which our students are engaged. These transformational learning opportunities include research, laboratory activities, travel abroad, academic clubs, and internships and clinical experiences. Our partnerships in the community are extensive and serve to enhance the education of our students in a variety of ways. For instance, the generosity of our partners funds scholarships and professorships that support our students and faculty members. Additionally, our community colleagues provide exceptional training environments for our students. We encourage you to visit our beautiful campus so that we may introduce you to our outstanding faculty, staff and students, and give you a tour of our state-of-the-art facilities. I know you will quickly see for yourself why students with dreams of working in the healthcare field choose the Brooks College of Health and the University of North Florida as their educational home. I look forward to welcoming you!
