Program Information
The public health profession focuses on preventing disease, mind addressing inequities and developing policies and programs that help communities achieve optimal health and wellbeing. Our program aims to educate and empower the emerging generation of public health leaders. The Bachelor of Science in Public Health prepares students for graduate work or careers in the field and exposes them to evidence-based research and practice experiences. Public health majors will complete the core coursework and select a specialization in either Population Health or Pre-Nursing. All majors are also required to complete a 400-hour internship experience; information about internship requirements and opportunities may be found here.

Public Health Major
Admission to the Public Health major requires a minimum cumulative CWU/combined GPA of 2.5; students who do not meet the GPA requirement or other pre-admission requirements may apply for admission on a provisional basis. Students wishing to enroll in the major should plan to meet with the program director.
