Our Mission

We advance health for all through collaborative learning and scholarly activities, enabling students and communities to thrive.

Our graduates work at the frontlines of emerging health issues, and strategically guide organizations and communities through evidence-based decision-making and cultural humility. Each of our programs prepares students in areas with projected job growth as organizations and communities recognize the need for better programs, healthcare, and environments that foster healthy people and communities.

Our degree programs include master's degrees in Health Education, Health Informatics, and Public Health. In addition, we offer an undergraduate degree in Community and Public Health with emphasis areas in Community/Worksite Wellness, Addiction Studies, and School Health.

Our academic certificate offerings include a graduate certificate in Public Health, and an undergraduate Community Health Worker certificate. Both of these certificate programs have reduced credits for focused training and can be completed in-person or online.
