School of Health and Human Services

Dean: Dr. Shirley Szekeres, Ph.D.

The School of Health and Human Services includes programs in art therapy, communication sciences and disorders, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and social work, and is associated with programs in music therapy, gerontology, and pre-medical and pre-dental preparation.

Nazareth College has been approved by the New York State Education Department to offer a combined B.S. degree in health science and a D.P.T. degree in physical therapy. All students completing the program are eligible to take the national licensing physical therapy examination. Based on a passing examination score and completion of state licensure requirements, graduates can practice as physical therapists. This program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE).

The School’s diverse health profession programs draw students looking for meaningful, service-oriented careers. These students are given the opportunity to begin by learning in the classroom about the field’s most recent developments in theory and research. Students are then challenged to put that knowledge to practical application in on-campus clinics and in a variety of off-campus practicum sites.

With thorough classroom training and extensive real-world experience, students from the School of Health and Human Services are well prepared to provide the best possible care for their clients and to face the varied challenges of their professions.
