BSPH Courses

The Bachelor of Science in Public Health is a skills-based science degree. Coursework is designed to furnish students with a keen understanding of the basic elements of public health and their applications before students progress through the program to pursue specialized interests. The core curriculum includes coursework in epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental health, health systems, and global health. Electives, offered within the BSPH program and through approved interdisciplinary courses, will build on this foundational knowledge. More information on the degree requirements for the BSPH degree can be found here.
