About Us

The Department of Public Health Sciences is the home to the only program in the state that is preparing public health educators at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. We offer a nationally approved undergraduate degree in community health education and an accredited Master in Public Health Degree with specialization in Community Health Education or Health Management and Policy. Both programs offer students the opportunity to take courses on-line or through the traditional face-to-face format.

Our faculty are nationally recognized as outstanding scholars, teachers, and mentors. Faculty have received many national awards, participated in national organizations and are known nationally and internationally in their field of study.

Faculty take great pride in working with students and mentoring them as they enter the public health world. We’re proud when we state ‘We ARE Public Health’. We’re even more proud of the fact that ‘We don’t just talk public health, we do it!’
