Public Health Undergraduate Major (BS, HBS)
Also available via Ecampus.
Public health is an exciting and diverse field for those interested in the health and well-being of populations and their environments. Careers in the public and private sectors offer opportunities to work locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally to promote health and prevent disease. Recognizing that multiple and complex factors affect the public’s health, our faculty and students examine environmental issues, access to health care services, health policies, and social and contextual factors as determinants of health.
Students in this major will choose one of the following major options:
- Health Management and Policy
- Health Promotion and Health Behavior
Both options provide students with the prerequisites for graduate programs in public health.
