What is Community Health?

This major prepares future practitioners for the ever-changing world of health care and health behavior, with special emphasis on the community context in which health care is delivered. You’ll choose from one of three concentrations: Health Education and Promotion, Health Planning and Administration, and Rehabilitation Studies. Working directly in the field and with faculty on research projects, you’ll learn to examine old problems from a new perspective and innovate theories, policies, and technologies that address emerging behavioral and environmental health concerns.
