What will I learn?

The Public Health major prepares students to plan, implement, and evaluate public health programs for individuals, groups, and populations in a variety of settings that include worksites, hospitals, schools, and communities. As healthcare costs continue to rise in the United States, training a highly skilled public health workforce is becoming a much greater priority. Courses in this major introduce students to the five core public health competency areas (Behavioral Social Sciences, Biostatistics, Environmental Health, Epidemiology, and Health Policy and Management). An internship at a worksite or in a clinical, community, or government public health setting is part of the curriculum. The goal of the program is to prepare students for entry-level positions in a variety of public health areas. Some students choose to pursue graduate or professional education in areas such as public health (e.g., a Master of Public Health is offered by the Department), nursing, occupational (OT) or physical therapy (PT), and medicine.
