Enter a Growing Field—and Make an Impact
Elmhurst College’s public health program gives you the tools to discover health solutions that make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.
Our new bachelor’s degree program, which launches this fall, prepares graduates to enter professional practice as informed advocates on the local, national and global levels. The skills you acquire can then be used to contribute to improving the health of your identified community or population.
You will develop critical thinking skills, learning 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.
From there, you will be prepared for entry-level positions in a variety of settings: health care, public health, teaching or policy. What’s more, you can also choose to continue your education at Elmhurst in our Master of Public Health program.
We are building a public health program that helps our students become agile problem-solvers.— Molly Tran, program director
