Program Description

 

With a Bachelor of Science in Public Health, graduates will be qualified for early career, entry-level positions in public health agencies and other public or private organizations. However, an additional outcome is to prepare students for advanced study via graduate and professional degree programs. The BSPH program gives students a broad introduction to the field of public health. However, graduate school offers a deeper education with a more intense focus on a specific topic area.
