Public Health Major

The Public Health Sciences (B.S.) and Public Health Policy (B.A.) majors have grown significantly over the last few years. For each Public Health major, some courses have been removed and others added from the list of requirements and course choices. Beginning 2009-2010 the College of Health Sciences has launched new versions for both Public Health majors in an effort to streamline the undergraduate curriculum. Highlights of the new version include:

  • Public Health Sciences: removal of PUBHLTH 101B “Epidemiology II” as a requirement, replaced by an additional upper-division course in one of the three specialty areas.
  • Public Health Policy: removal of PUBHLTH 101B “Epidemiology II” and one upper-division course, replaced by two specific PUBHLTH upper-division courses PUBHLTH 122 “Health Policy” and PUBHLTH 144 “Health Behavior Therapy”.
