Aligned with U.S. accreditation standards in public health, the coursework for this online degree program teaches new approaches to emerging public health issues including health promotion, communicable disease prevention, environmental health, public health surveillance and global health management.
Students will complete a capstone experience in their area of interest which will prepare them for careers in global health policy, data and informatics, systems thinking, and community-based care. Graduates of the Bachelor of International Public Health will be able to communicate evidence-based public health information through a variety of media and to diverse audiences; locate, evaluate and synthesize public health information; and will develop an intrinsic appreciation of the value of diverse perspectives throughout health and health care.
