The past few years have highlighted the need for Public Health professionals who can keep us healthy and safe. 

The public health field is based in the Five Ps framework:

  • Population-based
  • Prevention
  • Promotion
  • Protection
  • Preparedness

A Bachelors of Science in Public Health will allow you to choose from many paths, including medical school, physician’s assistant school, health administration, and public health. This is a field that’s entire mission is to understand, predict, diagnose, prevent, and treat public health concerns. From promoting healthy lifestyles to tracking and stopping epidemics, public health officials are vital to our ever-growing world population.

With real-world knowledge and classroom theory, Public Health is a science that reaches everyone on earth. Because it’s such a vast field, there are many paths to choose.

  • Community health and health promotion
  • Policy and advocacy
  • Data analysis and biostatistics
  • Epidemiology and disease prevention
  • Environmental health

Few fields can prepare you to have such broad impacts on the world as public health. The faculty for your Public Health degree are both academics and real-world experts who have worked in the public health field for years. 

If you’re ready for a career that can change lives and maybe the trajectory of history, the public health field awaits you.
