关于 the Bachelor of Science in 公共卫生

The major in 公共卫生 with a concentration in 全球 Health equips you with the tools necessary to study, research and practice ways to improve health outcomes for communities and populations. Our concentration in global health will allow you to apply these concepts to populations around the world.

A multidisciplinary program focus situates you at the intersections of public health, social science, and innovations in global health practice. These theoretical and practice-oriented underpinnings foster creative, evidence-based action to address the social, economic, and environmental determinants of health through the context of modern challenges and opportunities across societies.

The degree program emphasizes collaboration, critical thinking, and experiential learning. You will develop a unique set of skills with which to address health disparities and improve health and wellbeing in ways that are socially and culturally meaningful to communities in the United States and across the globe, “preparing students for life in a rapidly changing global society” in accordance with the mission and vision of Arcadia University.

Students interested in declaring public health as a major should meet with Dr. Katherine DiSantis to discuss the program.
