Make a global impact
From infant health and safety to the concerns of a rapidly aging population, public health issues are among the most immediate, relevant and growing throughout the world. International travel and commerce, climate change, antibiotic resistance and even geopolitical threats such as terrorism are on the radar of public health professionals no matter where they live. A degree in public health allows you to make a real and lasting impact on the world around you.
What is public health?
Public health is an exciting field of work dedicated to protecting and improving the health and well-being of communities, particularly those seen as the most vulnerable. While a doctor treats people who are sick, public health practitioners try to prevent people from getting sick or hurt in the first place, and promote wellness by encouraging healthy behaviors.
Why are graduates in public health important?
Public health is everywhere around us. When it works, it’s invisible. Public health professionals contribute to an increasingly needed skilled workforce that will work to improve the well-being of individuals and communities.
