You’ll choose one of two tracks to focus your studies: community health and environmental health sciences. With this degree, you’re on your way to becoming part of the solution as you learn about health promotion, disease prevention and health improvement strategies. The Public Health programme is offered at the University of Northern Iowa.


Public health matters. And there’s good reason to consider this field — and UNI:

  • The need. Public health is one of the fastest growing careers in the nation. 
  • Choice and flexibility. You have two tracks, two minors and five certificates to choose from and can combine areas to broaden your skills, knowledge and employability.
  • Experience. You gain hands-on learning through a nine-credit-hour field internship before graduation, with placements locally, across the United States or around the world.
  • The Public Health programme is offered at the University of Northern Iowa.

Why Public Health? 

Health affects us all: our families, communities and future generations. By influencing policy, behavior and environment, public health professionals create long-lasting changes that lead to healthier communities. In this field, you will: 
  • Assess populations;
  • Determine health issues;
  • Implement strategic programs to address those needs; and,
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of those programs long-term.
