Public health is an exciting and growing field of study that challenges professionals to confront complex health issues in local, national, and international communities. Public health is a rewarding field and an ideal program of study if you gain satisfaction knowing that you are working to improve the lives of others, especially by protecting the health of the public.
The Bachelor of Science in Public Health degree will allow you to incorporate many different aspects of a liberal arts education through various specialization areas including environmental health, public policy and administration, infectious disease epidemiology, health education, pre-medical, and biostatistics. In addition, the program provides a pathway to medical and graduate schools for students in the health sciences and human services.
