The public health major at Regis College is an interdisciplinary program for students who want to work on the forefront of emerging health and social issues across the globe. Courses in biostatistics, behavioral health, epidemiology, and public policy are combined with community engagement and service, providing students with real-world learning experiences before they graduate.
Students are taught how to promote health education, develop programs and policies, identify and monitor diseases, and conduct research. Internship placements include hospitals, community agencies, health care organizations, and nonprofit organizations. Public health majors learn from professors involved in public health initiatives across the United States and in countries like Chile and Syria, providing a unique global perspective into population problems and international health crises.
Graduates of the public health program are employed in healthcare settings, non-profit organizations, government agencies, academic settings, and research centers throughout the world.
