Public health professionals work to protect the environment, identify sources of illness in population groups, control disease outbreaks, evaluate the economic ramifications of changing demographics, developing interventions to promote healthy behavior, and produce health policy legislation. Public health draws from a broad array of disciplines, such as the social and behavioral sciences, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, business, economics, statistics, epidemiology, law, and biology; each provides unique insights for the diverse set of activities involved in public health practice.
Our faculty is no different than the diversity of public health. While each of them teach in the Health and Behavioral Sciences department, each of them have their own specialities on the public health spectrum including how to conduct research methods and data collection to biological assessments of cardiovascular and metabolic risk factors.
We offer several degree pathways as a result.
