Robert D. and Carol Gunn College of Health Sciences and Human Services
About the College
Students in the Robert D. and Carol College of Health and Human Services are leaders in their fields—many students have been published in some of the leading publications in their industry. Healthcare professionals from across the country are products of MSU’s masters programs in radiology, nursing, health services administration, public administration, and exercise physiology.
Some departments offer a blend of distance learning suited to those already employed in their fields or those located in the Wichita Falls area. The distance education opportunities offered as well as the clinical components of many of the programs allows students to interact with professionals in their industry as well as terminally qualified faculty. The student-to-faculty ratio is a point of pride in the College of Health and Human Services, as there are 15 students to a single professor. The small class sizes permit specialized attention and interaction with faculty that allow close contacts to be formed.
Internship opportunities are available with local and national preceptors, which will aid students in the expansion of their contact base. Students who complete their degree in the Robert D. and Carol Gunn College of Health and Human Services are very well prepared to continue on to PhD programs and often go on to work in disciplines in nursing, hospital administration, and city and county governments.
