Our public health program, with a concentration in Public Health Leadership and Innovation, prepares graduates to enter a professional practice as impactful public health practitioners on the local, national and global levels.

You will develop critical thinking skills, learn how to evaluate new information and communicate it to the public. You will also get practical, hands-on experience in the form of a capstone project and practicum that applies your knowledge to real-world issues.

Our undergraduate program prepares graduates for entry-level positions in a variety of settings: health care, public health, teaching or policy.

Our MPH program takes advantage of our [being part of a] liberal arts university to build your leadership skills and ability to manage organizational innovation, preparing students to lead public health organizations and initiatives.
