Bachelor’s of Science in Public Health at Albertus Magnus College

December 13 S'mores and Tours Esports Edition 6PM on Campus
Professional and Graduate Studies Virtual Open House

Save lives by solving big problems. A Public Health degree is designed to equip students with the analytical skills necessary to build and champion Public Health policies.  It also provides an understanding of research methods and data analysis as well as the history and present status of public health systems.

Public health is more than crisis response; it is the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting human health through organized efforts and informed choices.  The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated just how interconnected the world and the spread of epidemic diseases can be.

Interdisciplinary by nature, the Public Health program covers a wide range of sociological, scientific, and mathematic approaches and seeks to improve standards of living, affect healthcare policy, and prevent looming crises. 

The curriculum will help students develop and refine critical thinking and communication skills  and land a job in an ever-growing and ever-in-demand field.
