Prospective Majors

Leticia Gallegos

Thanks for considering New Mexico State University’s Public  Health Education undergraduate program.  We are one of only a handful of programs that are accredited by our two national professions–SOPHE and AAHE.  Public Health Education is an exciting, growing profession.  When one considers that almost all of our major health problems are caused by lifestyle and behavior, educating the community about healthy lifestyles, behaviors, and decisions is critical.

There are a number of links below that might be of value to you.  In addition, if you have any questions, feel free to come in and visit.
