Public health Department

The Public Health department has offered a B.S. degree in Public Health since 1975, with a focus on social determinants of health. This 120-credit program prepares students for entry into a broad range of professions in public health at the local, state, and national levels. Students from this program go on to graduate school in public health and other health-related disciplines, enter professions such as those in hospitals and local non-profit health agencies, and many go on to obtain training in health professions such as nursing, physical and occupational therapy and physician assistant.
