What is Public Health at WVU like?
Public health promotes and protects the health of people and the communities where they live, learn, work and play. Public health professionals work to prevent illness and injuries, promote wellness and safety, encourage healthy behaviors, track disease outbreaks and determine why some populations are more likely to suffer from poor health than others.
Public health is a new field of study at the undergraduate level. In the past, colleges and universities throughout the country only offered graduate degrees in public health. Now, WVU students can start a career in public health after earning a bachelor’s degree.
Students who enroll in the BS in Public Health program are individuals who want to make a difference in their communities and improve the health and well-being of the people around them.
