Discover God's calling for you to help make the world a healthier, safer place to live.

At Calvin, you'll gain a deep understanding of the role of public health in the world. In addition to a hands-on internship, you’ll take classes in health behavior and education, biostatistics, environmental and global health, epidemiology, ethics, and health policy and management.

And you'll combine that learning with your faith, and engage with peers and professors who will challenge and strengthen your convictions. You'll graduate ready to become a clinician or health service professional—and equipped with the wisdom to practice Christian compassion and stewardship.
