Bachelor of Science in Health, Aging & Society

HASDo you want to explore the sociological perspectives of health and aging? Are you more interested in researching health as a social problem than as a biological problem? If you want to work in health professions, administration, or management while considering interdisciplinary and interprofessional perspectives on health and aging, you might be interested in majoring in Health, Aging & Society.


Featuring four core areas of study, UTSA’s Health, Aging & Society degree program is designed to prepare students for jobs in the growing professions of medical and health services managers, social and community service managers, and human resources managers, as well as graduate training in the field of health and aging.

Core areas of study

CORE 1 introduces medical sociology, sociological social epidemiology, and the sociology of aging and the life course. This core also emphasizes the social, cultural, institutional, and structural dimensions health, health care, and aging.
CORE 2 introduces health professions and includes coursework in public administration and business management, preparing students for careers like medical and health services managers, social and community service managers, and human resources managers.
CORE 3 introduces methods of social research and data analysis to train students in the value and processes of data collection and analysis.
CORE 4 allows students to choose elective courses from Anthropology, Communication, Criminology & Criminal Justice, Economics, Geography, Management, Public Administration, Public Health, and Psychology to build interdisciplinary and interprofessional perspectives on health and aging that complement and challenge sociological perspectives.
