From the Department Head

AHS is a vibrant, interdisciplinary department committed to excellence in teaching, research, advising, and health promotion efforts. We prepare leaders for a broad range of health-related careers and contexts, giving students valuable mentorship and research experiences to propel them toward success in their professional goals. Students at all levels benefit from working with our distinguished faculty of recognized experts in areas like health behavior change interventions, promotion of healthy nutrition, genetics and genomics, clinical and laboratory techniques, and research methodologies. We have recently grown our faculty significantly, adding to the extensive portfolio of extramurally-funded grant research within the Department, and are looking forward to continuing to attract cutting-edge researchers and high-quality educators.

In undergraduate education, Allied Health Sciences is of one of UConn’s highest enrolled majors with multiple concentrations designed to launch students into a variety of health careers or graduate studies. The Allied Health Sciences major is currently offered on the Storrs campus and, as of fall 2020, will also be available on the Waterbury campus. Our nationally-accredited professional programs in Diagnostic Genetic Sciences, Dietetics, and Medical Laboratory Sciences produce workforce-ready professionals who are prepared for licensure exams in their chosen fields. Our growing graduate programs include a Master’s and PhD in Health Promotion Sciences and the innovative Professional Science Master’s in Health Care Genetics, and we are currently in the process of developing a Master’s in Genetic Counseling program. Additionally, our post-baccalaureate programs help individuals advance their career goals in Diagnostic Genetic Sciences, Dietetics, Medical Laboratory Sciences, and Occupational Safety and Health.

It’s an exciting time to be a part of this Department as we continue to prepare students to take an active role in shaping the future of healthcare and health research!
