Public health is founded on a multidisciplinary understanding of health that allows you to explore and examine the basis of disease and wellbeing by considering human behaviour, physical environments, socio-economic and cultural factors, and systems of healthcare management.
This major provides a broad overview of public health and the critical issues it confronts. To establish core understanding of this field, you will examine the foundational disciplines of public health, including epidemiology, biostatistics, health systems, environmental health and social sciences.
Studying public health can lead to a variety of roles within public and global health, health research or public health policy.
