To help meet workforce shortages in our state and nation, the College of Natural Sciences developed a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Health designed to prepare graduates for entry-level positions in public health and equip them to pursue certificate and graduate degrees in the field.
The public health major suits a variety of students, such as those interested in health careers and in dual degree programs (e.g. medicine and public health). The mission of public health is to preserve, promote, and improve the health and well being of populations, communities, and individuals. To fulfill this mission, we foster collaborations among public health and the health professions in education, research, and service.
