Public Health

The Public Health concentration in the Biology major approaches rigorous scientific investigation as a natural outgrowth of a Christian worldview, facilitating the development of knowledge, skills, and character necessary to produce graduates prepared to pursue a career, or graduate study, in ecology and environmental sciences. Students in this program will be prepared to serve the health needs of communities either locally or abroad. This concentration provides students with unique opportunities to integrate Christian faith with health education interventions. Understanding contemporary challenges in human health on a global scale will equip students to positively impact the societies in which they live and work while dealing with complex public health issues.
