Bachelor of Science in Public Health
The public health degree program provides students with a comprehensive program of study in preparation for careers and advanced degrees in public health. Public health majors take a set of core classes that span the broad scope of health promotion, disease prevention, and eliminating health disparities. Students will also complete a set of classes in one of four areas of emphasis: environmental health, social/behavioral health, epidemiology, or public health generalist. All students will complete their studies with a culminating experience of either a public health practicum or a senior thesis.
