About

Do you want to improve the health of families and communities? Then consider a career in public health. The Public Health program of Johnson & Wales University promotes healthy lifestyles, perform research for disease and injury prevention, respond to health emergencies, and identify and monitor infectious diseases.

Overview

In the Public Health program of Johnson & Wales University, you’ll start by examining patterns of population health and disease, as well as the organizations and social structures through which health services are delivered and received. From there, you’ll learn to assess and plan for community needs. Explore a holistic approach to health through courses in nutrition, exercise science, psychology, sociology, public health and economics, and discover its importance to patient-centered, humanistic healthcare delivery.

You’ll collaborate with other students as you would on a health and wellness team in the field to improve individual and community outcomes. You’ll also gain problem-solving and technological skills to adapt to the changing marketplace and learn how to communicate across diverse populations with empathy and respect.

Opt to pursue a specialization in health management to lead public health efforts, or choose from a mix of health science, leadership management and social/behavioral major electives to explore all dynamics of the public health field.

You’ll have the opportunity to perform health research, epidemiology, promotion and education through internship opportunities that range from local community health agencies to national and international organizations.

This flexible program satisfies requirements for a wide variety of pre-health professions. Upon graduation, you’ll be prepared for entry-level health-profession careers in such areas as health education, health promotion, research, monitoring and evaluation, and health and policy administration. Or choose to pursue graduate study in public health, public policy, law and health informatics.
