Our bachelor degree programs are rigorous, requiring students to focus on their academic
preparation for graduate school or for immediate employment. Our graduates are employed
in hospitals, businesses and governmental agencies at the local, state and national
levels. Additionally, many of our alumni have gone on to medical school, physician
assistant programs, and master's or doctoral programs in public health, health care
management, dietetics and other health professions.
Our master's programs prepare students to be practitioners in public health or healthcare
management. Our Master of Public Health (MPH) trains future public health professionals
to strategically plan, implement and evaluate evidence-based health promotion solutions
that improve health and well-being. Students with a background in kinesiology, biology,
psychology or other behavioral sciences, combined with graduate training in public
health at CBU, are able to make important contributions to the prevention and intervention
of diseases and disorders.
We offer many extracurricular opportunities including internships, workshops, global
mission trips, and various student clubs including the Nutrition and Food Science
Club, the Public Health Club, the American Medical Women’s Association, and Eta Sigma
Gamma, the National Health Education Honorary Society. Additionally, there are many
opportunities for students to pursue research projects—either independently or as
a research assistant for a faculty member.
We urge you to explore our academic programs, various student organizations, and the
many opportunities to be involved in research projects, internships and global mission
trips. We have a vibrant department with outstanding faculty, dedicated staff and
students who want to make a difference in the lives of others.
