Valdosta State University will offer a new degree starting in the fall.
Students will be able to earn a bachelor of science in health sciences.
University officials say this prepares students for a wide range of careers in the healthcare industry, which is currently one of the strongest job markets nationally.
This also lays out a foundation for graduate-level studies in things like athletic training, chiropractic medicine, and dentistry.
