The public health major will serve as a foundation for your future public health careers, from biostatistics and epidemiology, to health education and health policy, to global and environmental health. It will also prepare you for graduate training in these fields or in related professional health careers such as medicine, nursing or social work.

The interdisciplinary public health major consists of 15 courses. Seven of these courses are required and four courses meet distribution requirements. An additional four advisor-approved and program-approved elective courses are intended to deepen student learning in a key area of public health. Students are strongly urged to complete an internship as part of the major.
