Department of Health Sciences

The Department of Health Sciences is a vital part of EUC’s initiative to be a leading University in the region, offering excellence in Teaching, Research and Service with a strong student focus. Our department is committed to fostering interdisciplinary research in the health sciences as we work towards our mission to address the needs of our society by promoting health and well-being of individuals, families, and communities.

The Department of Health Sciences was founded in 2007 under the existing School of Sciences. At that time, the Department offered the undergraduate program of study in Nursing. One year later, in 2008 the undergraduate program of study in Physiotherapy was introduced and it was the only Physiotherapy program in Cyprus at that time. Witnessing the educational needs as well as the expectations of our society, the Department of Health Sciences expanded its programs of study. The rapid and extraordinary development of the Department is reflected in the introduction of new programs of study, at bachelor and master level, as follows:


In addition, the Department offers programs at doctorate level, as follows:


The Department’s fulltime faculty consists of distinguished scientists and experts with long academic and research experience in their respective fields. In addition, there is an active and involved group of adjunct faculty, special scientists and scientific collaborators. In order to ensure that our students’ clinical practice and internship is implemented effectively, our Department collaborates with public hospitals, food industry as well as with specialized private institutions.

At the Department of Health Sciences we aim is to deliver outstanding teaching and research related to human health and, in a long-term perspective, to provide its students with the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge in order to become leaders in their fields. Our graduates can pursue successful careers in public and private health care units and organizations, rehabilitation centers, community and sports clubs, physical therapy centers, schools, food processing companies and other in Cyprus and overseas.
