New Bachelor of Science Degree

Students in laboratory study together

A Message from Associate Dean Michaela J. Ritter

Dear RCHHS students,

The Robbins College of Health and Human Sciences is pleased to announce the launch of its Bachelor of Science Degree for Fall, 2019.  After years of hard work by faculty, staff, and administration, it is with great excitement that we offer the Bachelor of Science degree to our students.  In upholding the vision and mission of Baylor University, our goal is to provide a transformational education for our students and "educate men and women for worldwide leadership and service by integrating academic excellence and Christian commitment within a caring community." 

How do these changes affect you?

  • All freshmen and transfer students matriculating Summer or Fall 2019 will complete their degrees according to the new requirements stated in the 2019-2020 catalog.
  • All students who matriculated PRIOR to the 2019 catalog year will continue under the general education requirements of the catalog year they matriculated under unless it is in their best interest to change catalog years.
  • Current students who have already completed the majority of their general education and major course requirements will most likely benefit from staying on their current catalog year.
  • In some cases, it may be beneficial to switch to the 2019-2020 catalog.  You can review the requirements of the new degree by referencing the 2019-2020 Major Academic Planner for your intended program.  You can also run a "What If" audit in Bearweb to help you review the changes.  Click here for an FAQ regarding the new Bachelor of Science degree.

These are exciting times for the Robbins College of Health and Human Sciences, and for Baylor University, as we work together toward the goals laid out in Illuminate, and in the Robbins College Strategic Plan, which includes strengthening undergraduate programs and continuing to strive toward achieving Research 1, Tier 1 status.
