Bachelor of Science in Public Health



Overview

Change lives and make a difference in the local, national and global health community

The purpose of the online Bachelor of Science in Public Health degree program is to prepare candidates to advance professionally as effective, innovative and ethical health care leaders. Curriculum is focused on core disciplines within the scope of public health practice including epidemiology, biostatistics, behavioral science, environmental and occupational health, and curriculum design in health education.

Professionals in public health practice around the world are facing challenges - familiar, new, and emerging.  Chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and obesity continue to be leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the U.S. and beyond.  Infectious diseases such as influenza, pneumonia, and the HIV/AIDS pandemic continue to be problematic causes of mortality on a global-scale while emerging epidemics such as H1N1 influenza, SARS, avian influenza, and Ebola virus, have pandemic potential, capturing the attention of the public and of public health professionals alike.  Additionally, individuals continue to engage in risky behaviors such as tobacco use and substance abuse, compromising both individual and population health and wellness.  The U.S. and global populations are facing an unprecedented shift in aging which presents challenges as public health professionals attempt to prepare healthcare systems to accommodate specific needs of older adult populations. Meanwhile, there is increased awareness and importance focusing on disaster preparedness, whether from natural means or bioterrorism. 

Students in our online Public Health bachelor's degree program will develop specific knowledge and skills pertinent to gainful employment in the public health domain such as emergency services, disaster preparedness, program planning and evaluation, academic and applied research methods, and NIH grant writing. Students interested in graduate and advanced educational opportunities will have a solid foundation for meeting future goals and making meaningful contributions.

Graduates will develop a population-based perspective of wellness supported by rigorous academic training that explores the relationships among environmental/occupational, physical, psychological, economic, social, and spiritual dimensions of health affecting the human condition and population health. Additionally, graduates are eligible to sit for the nationally recognized credentialing examination in health education–Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) offered by the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing.

Consistent with the University student outcomes, upon completion of the Bachelor of Science in Public Health degree, graduates will be able to:

  1. Effectively present information orally and in writing.
  2. Assess needs, resources and capacities relevant to service in public health.
  3. Plan individual and population based health education.
  4. Implement and assess individual and population based health education.
  5. Conduct research and evaluation related to public health.
  6. Administer and manage public health resources.
  7. Develop as a future public health resource.
  8. Develop as a future public health advocate.
  9. Integrate a Christian perspective as it relates to health and wellness.
