College of Health and Human Services

Welcome to the College of Health and Human Services

Our vision is to be an innovative leader in the student-centered, interprofessional, preparation of health and human services professionals by providing students with an inclusive, community-engaged, and interdisciplinary academic experience. Our college offers degrees at the associate, baccalaureate and master degree levels. Doctoral degrees are offered in Nursing Practice and Physical Therapy. Explore our site to learn more about our diverse academic options, we have seven units that represent an array of professions.



Each discipline within our college has their roots in outreach to the community; they all prepare students for their professions by engaging them in activities within the community that applies the theories and concepts learned in the classroom for a comprehensive understanding of the issues. Students are required to complete clinical experiences, field work, or internships through one of the many affiliation agreements with a myriad of health and human service agencies in our region. Two nationally recognized mobile health and wellness units provide ways for students to apply their newly acquired skills in the provision of prevention services to residences in our region. CHHS is dedicated to preparing health and human services professionals who will work to improve the quality of life in their communities and beyond

The Institute for Rural Health, and the South-Central Kentucky Area Health Education Center are also housed in, or overseen by CHHS.
