Public Health

Public health professionals care. They care about people, communities, populations and societies. 

What You'll Study

The Public Health degree is designed to provide students with an understanding of public health principles and practices.  The degree includes two study tracks in Health Promotion and Health Administration. Fieldwork provides students with an opportunity to gain experience in public health practice that will prepare them for future employment and/or graduate school. 

After Graduation

Graduates with degrees in Public Health are in high demand as employers seek health professionals with practical skills and theoretical knowledge. Students with a knowledge of old and new issues affecting public health, current research in the field, and a focus on how social factors impact the health of entire populations will find opportunities that allow them to make positive change.
