I like to use case studies and activities to bring the content to life because public health should be fun! We will watch movies, interview public health professionals, listen to guest speakers and develop careers skills.

Careers

A predicted shortage of trained public health workers will drive a demand for qualified and caring graduates in this field in the coming years, especially in light of current healthcare changes.  Gain the knowledge you need to enter this growing field, which includes private and public practices aimed at promoting health and preventing diseases, with our major in public health.  You’ll be primed to truly make a difference in the world.

As a public health professional, you’ll be prepared to address current public health issues including childhood obesity, disease outbreaks, disaster prevention and recovery and nutrition and exercise.  And, if your interests lie in the social implications of health and wellness, you’ll be encouraged to take the Certified Health Education Specialists exam after graduation.

Students will be prepared to pursue graduate study in public health or rewarding work, which awaits in numerous and diverse settings.
