Majoring in Community Health Science involves the study of the social, environmental, and political influencers on the health of individuals and populations. You’ll learn how health threats are spread, treated and prevented. How does lack of access to health care impact epidemics? What are the ethics involved in vaccination programs? What roles do communication and education play in community health? You’ll gain knowledge and skills that are important for any health care career as you take 47 credit hours towards a Bachelor of Arts degree.
You'll also have real opportunities to learn beyond the classroom via Tetra Delta Club activities for science majors, as well as clinical and internship opportunities. Because we design our community health science program to be responsive to the exact needs of the marketplace, it will be a relevant major if you’re considering graduate study in public health or a career in public and community health and wellness settings.
