Health Science

The healthcare profession is set to become the largest and fastest-growing sector in the U.S. economy

"Health Science is the fastest-growing sector of the South Carolina job market, and high demand for healthcare workers means their jobs are among the best paying in the state, as well. As South Carolina’s population ages and more people need healthcare services, opportunities expand for employees who like working with people and have mastered the basics in math, science, and communications. You don’t have to go to school for 10 years, either—plenty of good healthcare jobs require only associate’s or bachelor’s degrees. "
