Public health is an exciting and growing field of study that challenges professionals to confront complex health issues in local, national, and international communities.

The Public Health degree is intended to provide students with a solid background in general public health as well as the various specialization areas such as environmental health, community health, public policy and administration, epidemiology, health education, and global health.

Students with a public health degree could also work in business, health communication, health services administration, social work, or law. This rigorous program provides a pathway to medical school and will prepare students for graduate studies in fields related to the health sciences, human services, and public health.
