Everyone deserves an equitable chance to be healthy! Public health uses an interdisciplinary approach to keeping a community or population as healthy as possible. Rather than focusing on providing medical treatment after individuals become ill, public health focuses on keeping communities healthy to begin with. Graduates of Community and Public Health are equipped to work as health education specialists, community health workers, public health analysts, environmental specialists, health services managers, program managers, in coordinated school health, or with non-profit organizations. Additionally, our graduates are well-positioned for graduate programs in the fields of epidemiology or biostatistics. We know our students are the future leaders of public health, a field with much faster than average job growth according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics. Our goal is not only to ensure that you are well-equipped to be successful professionally but also to support you as much as possible while you are pursuing your education with us.
