A major in public health offers students the opportunity to explore the art and science of helping people change their lifestyle to move toward a state of optimal health. Lifestyle changes may be facilitated by enhancing awareness, changing behavior, or creating environments which support better health practices. Students pursuing a generalist public health degree with a health promotion focus, gain an understanding of disease and illness, epidemiology, statistics, behavior approaches to public health, environmental health, public health policy and advocacy and health care systems. The major blends instruction from biology, chemistry, political science, psychology, sociology, marketing, communication and medicine into applications addressing current health problems facing our community.

The program is designed to prepare students for both the workforce and graduate school. Students completing the degree are prepared for employment in a variety of health service-related settings at the local, state, national, and international levels, at voluntary health agencies, in wellness programs within business and industry, medical facilities, or private consultation. Students are also prepared for advanced degree study in public health or health science-related degree programs. Therefore, students desiring careers in allied health/medical fields may complete prerequisite courses within the major.
