Study health science, social science and humanistic approaches to addressing global health challenges.
The public health program at Pacific University develops students’ abilities to understand, analyze, problem-solve and communicate effectively in a complex, rapidly changing world. It integrates health science, social science and humanistic approaches to addressing global health challenges.
Students complete a faculty-supervised internship and focus on particular career paths in public health, such as community health, public policy or cross-cultural work. They also build skills for communicating effectively with the public, research community and media; and cultivate the highest ethical standards. Many combine undergraduate public health education with graduate studies in public health or the health professions.
