Program Highlights

OCC Health

A degree in occupational safety and health is one of BYU-Idaho’s best-kept secrets. Occupational safety and health professionals protect employees by evaluating and controlling health and safety hazards in the workplace. Our graduates have very high job-placement rates, very high starting salaries, and excellent potential for continued income growth.

Canceled Programs

The Department of Health, Recreation and Human Performance has regrettably had to eliminate some programs in recent months. Although these programs still have classes listed in the course catalogs to help students currently enrolled to complete their degree requirements, the programs are not open for new students to enroll. Those programs are Health Education (minor), Medical Assisting, Paramedicine, and Physical Education (minor). We regret any inconvenience this will cause.
