Earlier this month our staff answered questions in a virtual chat. Some participating students knew exactly which degree they were interested in and what they wanted to do with it. Others were a little unsure of “public health” and what opportunities exist in the discipline.
It’s that last group of students I want to help today.
Public health is a broad field encompassing everything from the etymology of disease to health promotion, the molecular structure of viruses to health care delivery. What you study and where you go after graduation is largely up to you!
