PUBLIC HEALTH Aims and Objectives The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Public Health is designed for students seeking a health-related major that is more broadly-based than the focused, existing majors within the University. The major combines a foundation in health-related courses, sciences, humanities, and social sciences with a breadth of courses within one or more departments in the University. In addition to the major requirements, which represent the health and science focus of the college, students will select a concentration track that will build on students’ personal and career goals and interests. There are three concentration tracks: 1) science, 2) health care with management, and 3) health education/communication. This major is ideal for students who may envision working in a variety of settings within the health services arena during their professional careers. A major in Public Health will open doors to entry-level positions in a wide variety of health-related agencies, medical centers, long-term care facilities, assisted living facilities, private and public health organizations, as well as local, state, and federal health departments. In addition, the program is appropriate for students interested in graduate study in a variety of health-related fields, such as graduate programs in health sciences/public health.
