The field of public health serves as an important foundation for the promotion and protection of health - locally, nationally, and globally. While clinical health professionals such as doctors and nurses work to treat illness and injury once they have occurred, public health is focused on preventing problems from happening or re-occurring through the administration of prevention services, health education and promotion, policy development and regulation, and research.

A Bachelor of Science or minor in Public Health is preparation for entry into a dynamic, complex, and broad profession. The interdisciplinary Public Health curriculum is designed to position students for careers in public health practice both locally and globally, as well as for further graduate study in public health and health-related fields.
