About this Program

The program in public health focuses on protecting and improving the health of populations—from neighborhoods to nations—through education, promotion of healthy lifestyles, and research for disease and injury prevention. Coursework covers a broad range of public health topics and a student-selected "track" of interest: community health education or health administration. Students are prepared for entry level positions in public health settings or for continuing education.
