What can you do with a BPH?

Public health protects and improves the health of individuals, families, communities, and populations, locally and globally. A public health degree prepares graduates to be leaders, scholars, practitioners, and advocates. Our BPH graduates can pursue advanced studies in public health, healthcare administration, public policy, law, medicine, pharmacy, and other fields. They are prepared to serve as leaders in government and non-profit agencies, healthcare systems, and health education. The broad-based education in public health means that our students graduate ready to support health for all.
