We're committed to educating strong, diverse, and well-prepared future health professionals. We work with local colleges and community groups to encourage middle school, high school, and undergraduate students to explore the field of public health. Although our school doesn't directly offer undergraduate education, our faculty collaborate with undergraduate programs across the state. These and other programs prepare students for entry into graduate degree programs and entry-level public health positions.
In response to the tremendous career and research opportunities in public health, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS), in partnership with the Colorado School of Public Health (ColoradoSPH), created an undergraduate major in Public Health, with both a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Science (BS) degree option. All core classes for the public health major are team taught by one faculty member from the downtown campus and one from the Anschutz Medical Campus.
Environmental health is the study of how people interact with their environment— air, water, soil, plants, and animals in workplaces and homes—in order to identify and mitigate potential impacts on human health. Offered by the CSU College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, the environmental health program offers students small class sizes of 25-30 students and promotes interactive student-faculty relationships.
The Human Services program offered by the College of Natural and Health Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado provides you with a multidisciplinary education to build on while using elective courses to narrow your focus on community health. You'll be prepared for a career working with people of all ages, helping them prevent disease and develop positive, healthy lifestyles. You’ll study health education strategies, learn about the most significant diseases affecting the United States, and apply statistical principles to the study of diseases in communities.
