Miami University offers two undergraduate degrees in public health. Undergraduate students take a variety of courses to build general public health knowledge and develop a broad, interdisciplinary understanding of how to address existing and emerging public health problems.
Students choose from two degree options:
Both degrees require a set of integrated core courses with additional requirements that encourage students to explore a breadth of coursework. Both degrees prepare students seeking future training in the health sciences, such as medicine, dentistry, nursing, kinesiology, pharmacy, and social work.
Students who have an interest in the complex interplay of cultural, ethical, social, economic, political, and social justice forces that shape human health.
Students who would like to pursue careers in health education and promotion or non-profit/governmental work.
Students with a public health major will be able to:
The requirements represent the faculty’s consolidation of the standards specified by the Council of Education for Public Health (CEPH) and a thorough review of undergraduate public health programs offered by other universities. The program is intentionally broad in focus within the discipline in order to expand the opportunities of the graduate. Our curriculum requires a set of core courses needed by all public health majors, focus course selections and a capstone course that provides more in-depth coverage of disciplines within the field, and elective courses to complement the students’ career objectives and interests.
Public Health Promotion examines the principles and practices of health promotion to address current and emerging public health problems. The focus of the concentration is on the development of public health education prevention strategies across the life span.
