Careers as a family counselor, public health educator, risk manager, and food safety specialist - just to name a few - are all in the field of health sciences. All interested applicants should speak with HSSSS staff about program qualifications.
Q. What support does an SSS advisor provide ?
A. Students are assigned to an advior to determine their learning strengths and challenges and devise an Education Action Plan outlining the most appropriate services HSSSS and the College can provide. Advisors support students as they acquire new skills and learn how to be a successful college student; however, their role does not stop here. Students remain in the program through to the successful completion of earning their degree and utilize program resources in a variety of ways.
