Graduate University Policies
The Department of Public Health offers an undergraduate program culminating in a Bachelor of Science in Health (B.S.H.) in Public Health degree. The Department also offers a minor in Public Health for students outside of the Department or College. The B.S.H. degree, Public Health Track, prepares graduates to encourage healthy lifestyles and wellness. Professionals inform and educate individuals and communities about behaviors that promote healthy living and prevent disease and illness. Careers may involve planning, implementing, or evaluating health promotion and disease prevention programs, conducting public health related research, grant writing, or mass media campaigns. Graduates are typically employed in governmental and non-profit health agencies, health care facilities, work site wellness programs or school settings.
A University-wide minor in Public Health is available for non-Health Science majors. Students interested in the Public Health minor should contact the Brooks College of Health Advising Office at (904) 620-620-2812. Departments or divisions that wish to offer a minor in Public Health may do so provided they complete the requirements.
