Health Sciences

Are you interested in a healthy lifestyle? Do you want to help people to become a healthy and happy 100-year old? Shouldn't you first know why the body of one person falls ill and that of another doesn't? Do exercise, nutrition and lifestyle influence this? If so, should we not convince (or oblige?) everyone to exercise more, stop smoking and eat superfoods? And once they are 100, how can we offer them good and affordable health care? Maybe by implementing more digital innovations in care?

If these questions make you think, then you are in the right place at Health Sciences. Because during that bachelor's you view health in combination with behaviour, nutrition, environment, social environment and health care. Read more >
