Public Health is a science concerned with promoting and protecting health in individuals, families, communities and entire populations through such measures as disease prevention, promotion of healthy lifestyles, and research on epidemics and infectious diseases. The BSPH prepares students to work in a number of health-related fields or enter graduate or professional school. Public Health professionals with this degree are in increasing demand for employment by government agencies and private organizations as public health analysts, health care managers, patient educators, risk assessors, and occupational health and safety technicians.
