College of Health Sciences
Logan University’s College of Health Sciences’ mission is to contribute through our commitment to excellence in health care education and preparing students to become leaders in their professions in integrative health care.
Our vision is the commitment to be leaders in health care education, to make a difference in the lives of our students, their careers and the health of future patients; to continuously seek to improve existing programs and identify, design and implement additional complementary programs.
The College of Health Sciences (CoHS) began in 2013. The Master of Science (MS) programs in Sports Science and Rehabilitation and Nutrition and Human Performance underwent curricular changes to become stand-alone programs. The two Bachelor of Science (BS) programs were 3+3 programs into the Doctor of Chiropractic Program (DCP). Both underwent curricular changes in Fall 2015; the BS in Life Science became a 3+1 program into the DCP while the BS in Human biology became a stand-alone degree. The CoHS started the MS degree in Health Informatics (MSHI) in the Fall of 2015 and the Doctorate of Health Professions Education (DHPE) in the Summer of 2016. The CoHS programs are currently online degrees.
Master level student retention at or above 75% is considered the standard best practice. Logan CoHS has a strategic goal to be at 80%.
The MS in Nutrition & Human Performance curriculum was changed in Fall 2014 to a stand-alone program instead of a combined DC/MS program. In Fall 2015 this program became a 100% online program.
The MS in Sports Science and Rehabilitation curriculum was changed in Fall 2014 to a stand-alone program instead of a combined DC/MS program. In Fall 2016 this program became a 100% online program.
The BS in Life Science degree was completed in the first two years of the DC program. Fall of 2015, the BSLS became a 3+1.
Bachelor level student retention at or above 65% is considered the standard best practice. Logan CoHS has a strategic goal to be at 70%. The Human Biology program was converted as a stand-alone in Fall 2015, so trending data is not readily available. But the most recent data shows CoHS 1st to 2nd year at 65% for Fall 2016 cohort group.
The curricular changes to both BS degrees included the introduction of a general education framework that allowed first time freshman.
Retention data for DHPE AY2017 is 93.3%.
Part-Time / Full-Time Online Masters
In the online Masters programs, our students are approximately 84% part time, although they may become full-time anytime in their studies. As the industry standard for full-time students is at 150% of the program, we have set the graduation rate for part time students at 5-years.
The goal for our graduate degree programs is 75% and our undergraduate degree program goal is 65%. These goals were established based on current literate outlining current industry standards.
