The public health major is a four-year baccalaureate degree option for individuals who are seeking to pursue further education in a clinical or public health degree. It also offers the option for individuals to seek a career in public health upon graduation. The goals of this program are threefold: to develop alumni who will have the knowledge and skills to benefit, promote, and protect the health of their communities; to offer an academic program that will provide students the opportunity to graduate with the knowledge and skills which would allow them to enter the workforce upon graduation as a public health professional; and to offer an academic program that students may use as a pre-professional track to pursue further graduate education in the public health or health care field.
