Bachelor of Science in Urban Community Health Sciences

The Bachelor of Science in Urban Community Health Sciences (UCHS) program at CDU prepare undergraduate students for the public health workforce and/or advanced education in the health sciences such as public health or health-related fields such as urban planning and public policy.
