Saint Francis offers a public health degree embedded in the liberal arts tradition, emphasizing personal and professional ethics, and based upon the University’s nationally-recognized Franciscan mission. [+]

It’s Contagious; Spread the Word! With the movement to improve the health of our nation and healthcare system, it is an exciting time to consider a degree in public health. Saint Francis offers a public health degree embedded in the liberal arts tradition, emphasizing personal and professional ethics, and based upon the University’s nationally-recognized Franciscan mission. In addition, Saint Francis offers a multitude of tracks, allowing students to specialize their public health degree and receive either a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts. Welcome to the diverse and rewarding world of public health! Whether your interests are already focused in public health or you only know that you want a career where you can help people and impact health, public health is worth a second look. What is Public Health? Public Health begins with an undergraduate degree that prepares you to work with people to improve health, prevent disease and make a difference in their lives. It is a fast growing field with a wide variety of entry level jobs locally, nationally, and globally. What will I learn to do? You will learn to understand how people make decisions about their health and using that knowledge, you can support them in making healthy changes. You can also help people navigate the complex health system, answer questions about health insurances, design health programs, manage projects, and interpret and translate scientific information for the public. You will become an expert in identifying valid health data and effective programs, compiling and writing grants, making complex decisions, solving health-puzzles, and creating health education and marketing materials like movies, flyers, posters and more. Where can I get a job after graduation? Many organizations hire public health professionals, such as government organizations, universities, hospitals, doctor's offices, nonprofit organizations, or schools. As a public health professional, some of the many areas you can work in include maternal and child health, disaster response and preparedness, infectious disease investigation, research, environmental health, workplace safety, child abuse awareness and reduction, community health, etc. What if I already have a major? That’s great you already have a career path, but you may want to explore how a public health minor can set you apart from the competition. If your major is in another health science field, you may only need a few extra classes for the minor. If your major is in a program outside of health science, just five classes will give you a public health minor. Interested in pre-professional? A Bachelor of Science in Public Health will give you an edge for applying to advanced education: "Medical schools are increasingly receptive to a wider range of undergraduate education. In fact, they are encouraging courses in behavioral and social sciences, including public health and epidemiology." Source: Riegelman R., Kirkwood, B. (2015) Public Health 101, Second edition.
