About

The Public Health program of University of Evansville trains students in multidisciplinary approaches to public health practices.

Overview

During the Public Health program of University of Evansville students learn about a range of issues that impact population health, global health, environmental health, disease prevention, health communication and informatics, healthcare systems, and health behavior. Students will advance through employment or further education and become the new generation of public health professionals prepared and ready to protect and improve the health of the overall population.

Here are a number of reasons why you should consider an education in public health at the University of Evansville:

  • Students may earn both bachelor's and master's degree in five years, providing them with an advantage after graduation.
  • The Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) estimates that 250,000 more public health workers will be needed by 2020. To replenish the workforce and avert the crisis, schools of public health will have to train three times the current number of graduates over the next 11 years.
  • The public health workforce is diminishing over time (there were 50,000 fewer public health workers in 2000 than in 1980), forcing public health workers to do more for more people with fewer resources. This challenge is compounded by the fact that 23 percent of the current workforce - almost 110,000 workers - were eligible to retire in 2012.
  • There are documented and forecasted shortages of public health physicians, public health nurses, epidemiologists, health care educators, and administrators. Without enough public health workers protecting us where we live, work and play, we all are vulnerable to serious health risks.
  • Success after graduation. You will have the adequate training necessary to find a career in public health or further your education by seeking admission to professional programs such as public health, physical therapy, medicine, law, business, and many more.
  • This is one of the few programs in Indiana with an online graduate degree in Public Health. Students can earn the MPH in as little as 2 years, completely online.
