Why Health?

In addition to becoming more confident making choices to live a healthier lifestyle, studying health at HCC will prepare you for a variety of certificate allied health programs.

It also provides an introduction for health careers in health sciences, community health and wellness, leisure and recreation, exercise science, nutrition, and fitness. It also provides an enjoyable elective when transferring to a four-year institution for many majors.

Why Heartland?

There are many reasons to study at Heartland Community College.

  • Affordable
  • Student-focused
  • Dedicated instructors
  • Small class sizes
  • Variety of class times, topics, and formats (classroom and online)
