Public Health is a school-wide liberal arts major, leading to a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science, that uses public health questions, concepts, and tools to teach critical thinking skills. Students learn to ask questions, challenge assumptions, and explore answers to promote the health and well-being of communities, locally, nationally, and globally. By integrating the diverse areas of public health, students are introduced to the determinants of health, emerging diseases, access to health care and modes of health care delivery, the geography of health, and the effects of environment on health and disease.
