BS in Public Health and Wellness

Bachelor of Science in Public Health and Wellness

The Public Health and Wellness program will prepare students to understand and address the conditions and behaviors that advance or impede the public’s health. Through rigorous coursework, research experiences, and community engagement, our students will learn to use evidence-based and theory-driven practices to advance the health and well-being of all people in communities, locally, nationally, and globally. Public Health and Wellness graduates will be qualified to enter various professions within public health, government and non-government agencies as well as be able to pursue further graduate study.

As of Fall 2020, the B.S. in Community Health is now the B.S. in Public Health and Wellness. Students who began in Community Health may graduate with that degree or may switch to the B.S. in Public Health and Wellness. Please contact your advisor, Ms. Laurie Dwyer,, to discuss the best option for you.
