Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments & Programs

Effective: Fall 2018

Requirements for the Major (54-56 credits)

Proper training in population health necessitates a broad understanding of the life and social sciences. Public Health majors must, therefore, choose from 20 elective credits. These courses will provide them with foundational knowledge about the biophysical environment and the sociocultural environment.  Specifically, PH majors are required to take at least one elective course in the Biosciences category and two elective courses in the Sociocultural category.  An additional requirement is that PH majors must take a minimum of two elective courses that carry the PH designation. These two PH elective courses may be taken from either the Biosciences category or the Sociocultural category.

A. Biosciences Electives (at least 4 credits)


BIOL 270 /BIOL 370 - Topics in Biology  may apply to the Public Health major when the topic is appropriate.

B. Sociocultural Electives (at least 8 credits)
