The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) with a major in Public Health is designed to promote an understanding of health and disease based on public health principles. The primary goal of the program is to prepare students to work in public health to improve the quality of life of individuals and communities. The curriculum provides general knowledge regarding public health principles and practice augmented by concentrated study (tracks) in Environmental and Occupational Health, Health Behavior and Health Delivery. Field work provides students with an experience that incorporates classroom learning into public health practice and prepares them for future employment.
