PULSE is a Learning Community designed specifically for first-year students who plan to pursue a graduate degree for their future health career, such as physician, physician assistant, physical therapist, pharmacist, or veterinarian. All students in PULSE will be enrolled in the same sections of the following:

  • BIO 201: Principles of Biology: Cell
  • CHHS 205: Introduction to Health and Human Services
  • UNI 101: First-Year Seminar

This program proves to be a great start to help students achieve academic success in prerequisites like BIO 201 - a course that is traditionally required for admission into any dental, medical and other allied health graduate programs. CHHS 205 is an introduction to careers and issues in healthcare. In addition, students complete UNI 101, a requirement for all first-year students to graduate from UNCW.  All of these courses fulfill University Studies requirements.
