Bachelor of Science in Public Health

Public health professionals work to create conditions that ensure the health and safety of individuals, families and communities. Public health students are trained to inform, empower and educate people about health issues and to mobilize communities to take ownership of their own health. CBU's Public Health major provides students the opportunity to work in a variety of healthcare settings, including public and private health clinics, hospitals, and wellness centers. Students learn how to influence healthcare trends by planning and evaluating both community and individual health programs.
