Stephen R. Hooper, Associate Dean and Chair, Department of Health Sciences

The Department of Health Sciences in the UNC School of Medicine offer two professional majors to undergraduate students: the bachelor of science degree with a major in clinical laboratory science and the bachelor of science degree with a major in radiologic science. Students must apply for admission to these programs, usually in the sophomore year; admission is competitive. Following completion of the first two years’ work in the University’s General College, admitted students complete their final two years in clinical laboratory science or radiologic science.

In addition, the Division of Speech and Hearing Sciences offers a minor in speech and hearing sciences for undergraduate students interested in pursuing a graduate degree in speech-language pathology or audiology.
