Health SCIENCEs' RESPONSE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Due to concerns regarding COVID-19, classes at The University of Alabama allowed an extended Spring Break to allow faculty time to move coursework to alternative and online learning. Afterwards, students will not be returning to classes on campus for the Spring semester but will instead transition to remote or alternative learning (depending on the course). Students will need to check their Blackboard courses for specific information about each class they are enrolled in.
During this challenging time, the Department of Health Science is committed to supporting our students, faculty, and staff. We are working with various stakeholders, such as the College of Human Environmental Sciences (HES), Office of Disability Services, Testing Services, and others, to make this transition as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Academic advising will resume by distance once courses resume. If you are a student and haven’t met with an advisor or have questions, please contact your academic advisor by e-mail to discuss your academic schedule prior to registration. No face-to-face advising appointments will be scheduled in an effort to adhere to the University’s efforts towards social distancing. If you are unsure as to who your advisor is, this information can be found by looking in your Degreeworks. If you need additional assistance, please contact the HES Student Services office at email@example.com
The Health Science curriculum allows students to select a major in either public health or athletic training.

The College of Human Environmental Sciences embraces the web’s ability to connect CHES with our students, faculty and staff, alumni, supporters, and prospective students. Part of that initiative is to offer new ways for our audience to interact with us on the web via the use of the most popular social networking tools on the web, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Vimeo, Flickr & iTunes U.
Now you can get the latest information, connect with CHES and with other students, alumni and staff, interact with great streaming video content, and more. Add CHES to your social networking tools and help create a community of CHES supporters.
The College of Human Environmental Sciences has three instructional computer labs and one open computer lab, which provide supervised environments where students may gain knowledge and experience in computer applications. The labs also supply CHES faculty with state of the art computer facilities and training to aid teaching and research activities.
Current UA students wishing to take courses at another university or community college will need to complete a transient letter to give to that respective institution.
