What will I learn?

The Public Health, B.A. is designed for career-oriented students who recognize that health and health care in America are major public concerns and who plan to seek employment in one of a variety of administrative, supportive, planning and policy positions. Students may choose an undergraduate emphasis in health services administration, health policy or public health.

Students in the Public Health, B.A. can expect to achieve the following objectives: a comprehensive understanding of health-care issues and the health care system that will underpin various educational and career goals; training in basic administrative, managerial and research skills; preparation for entry-level employment in community health and health care organizations and in support systems in the private and public sectors; and preparation for a graduate program leading to an advanced degree in a health-related field.

Public health majors study with instructors and faculty who are working in the health-care field or who have had years of applied experience before joining the academic arena. Each instructor brings this practical understanding of the health-care field into the classroom. For qualified majors there are opportunities to work with faculty members on their personal research or to develop the student's own research project.
