Bachelor of Science in Public Health
The BSPH program at CDU aims to prepare undergraduate students for the public health workforce and for advanced education in the health sciences, such as public health or medicine or health-related fields such as public policy. Grounded in the understanding that structural and social inequalities impact health outcomes in historically disadvantage and under-resourced communities, the BSPH program aims to provide the next generation of scholars and practitioners a rich educational foundation that integrates theoretical, applied, and social justice knowledge.
The BSPH program offers a rich public health curriculum that integrates the foundational public health domains: knowledge, skills, and research experience, which enhances our graduates’ ability to translate and apply the newly gained public health knowledge and skills to public health practice. Upon completion of the degree, BSPH graduates will be equipped to addressed health disparities, health equity, and socio-environmental justice issues prevalent in urban under-resourced communities. BSPH graduates can pursue employment in local, state and national public health agencies and organizations, social and health service sectors, not-for profit community-based organizations (CBOs), and be highly prepared to pursue further health-related graduate education.
The BSPH program accepts applications for matriculation in the Fall and Spring semesters only. To apply for an undergraduate program in the College of Science of Health, prospective students must complete the application for undergraduate studies online.
