Bachelor of Science in Public Health Now Available at UB

Posted by Tim on July 11, 2017 in Academics, New Programs

A Public Health BS degree is now available within the UB School of Public Health & Health Professions.  You can find more information about the program here: http://sphhp.buffalo.edu/home/education/undergraduate-and-minors/public-health.html  

As you know, public health represents a growing and dynamic field with opportunities to address the world’s most pressing health problems. The discipline is a combination of both the science and art of advancing the health of individuals, families, communities, and populations through education, promotion of healthy behaviors, and research for disease and injury prevention. The major will prepare students for both entry-level positions in public health and related careers and for advanced study in public health and health professions.

Major requirements can be found here and include both coursework in public health and foundation courses in both the sciences and the social sciences: http://sphhp.buffalo.edu/home/education/undergraduate-and-minors/public-health/requirements-and-curriculum.html Students who wish to update their major to public health may do so via the following webform: https://ubsphhp.formstack.com/forms/ug_plan_change
