About the Department of Public Health

Public health education and administration are exciting fields. In addition to the need for effective health promotion and education programs, we also must rethink the way that we organize, finance and deliver health services. Our faculty and staff are researching these issues and preparing students for leadership positions in the field.

The following webpages describe our undergraduate degree programs. We invite you to read about our programs and learn how to help improve the health of our residents and the functionality of our health care delivery systems at the local, state and national level!
