Minor in Public Health

The study of Public Health assures that the conditions of society promote healthy people through programs that address the physical, mental, and environmental health concerns of communities, and populations at risk for disease and injury. Students who minor in public health will be more competitive applicants into graduate programs in public health that award the Master of Public Health (MPH) and/or Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) degree. The three public health functions are: 1) the assessment and monitoring of the health of communities to identify health problems and priorities, 2) the formulation of public policies in collaboration with community and government to solve identified health problems, and 3) the assurance that all populations have access to appropriate and cost-effective health care.
