1 Public Health Why Choose Public Health? Public health is the science and art of preventing illness and disease and promoting evidencebased health practices with the goal of improving the quality of life. It is concerned with threats to health based on population health analysis. The population in question can be as small as a handful of people, or as large as all the inhabitants of several continents. The dimensions of health can encompass a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, as defined by the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO). Public health incorporates the interdisciplinary approaches of epidemiology, biostatistics and a vast array of health services. A host of specialists including educators, journalists, researchers, administrators, environmentalists, demographers, social workers, laboratory scientists and more, work to protect the health of the public. Public health professionals serve local, national and international communities in settings such as environmental health, community health, behavioral health, health economics, public policy, insurance and occupational health. Public health is a very rewarding field offering great personal fulfillment in serving others. According to Healthy People 2010 (a study of the U.S. Public Health Infrastructure), there is growing demand for public health professionals, which will exponentially increase with the advent of recently passed health care reform legislation known as the Affordable Care Act. Historically, public health education existed as a professional degree program with training at the graduate level only. In 2003, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommended that public health education be accessible to all undergraduates. The theme of the Ferris Public Health program is rural public health which is intended to focus on populations that are underserved by virtue of their geographic location in rural settings. The BSPH program includes both traditional and accelerated tracks, with the accelerated track culminating in a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree within 5 years (See the MPH program catalog page for further information about this track). Career Opportunities The Bachelor of Science in Public Health (BSPH) prepares students to pursue entry level careers in public health within governmental, private or non-profit sectors in areas such as public health education, health promotion, environmental health, community health, epidemiology, nutrition, health informatics, biostatistics, global health, maternal and child health, health economics, health services research, health policy and health planning and assessment. Because public health professionals work in such a wide variety of settings and often work in multi-disciplinary capacities, the salaries vary significantly from job to job. An estimated salary range for BSPH graduates is $37,000 to $50,000 and can then range from $60,000 to $150,000

2 for MPH graduates, depending on the area of specialization. (Source for this and other information: Association of Schools of Public Health website: According to the U.S. Department of Labor-Bureau of labor Statistics, employment of health educators and community health workers is projected to grow 21 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations. Growth will be driven by efforts to improve health outcomes and to reduce healthcare costs by teaching people about healthy habits and behaviors and utilization of available health care services (source: Admission Requirements Minimum GPA of 2.7 on a 4.00 scale (Traditional Track) or 3.0 on a 4.00 scale (Accelerated Track) International applicants must submit a minimum paper or internet TOEFL score of 550/80 respectively Completion of the pre-professional courses with minimal grades of C in all Biology, Chemistry and Math and CHP Core courses (COHP prefix). Graduation Requirements The Bachelor of Science in Public Health requires a minimum GPA of 2.0 overall for graduation. Students must earn a grade of C or higher in all major (PUBH) and COHP courses and meet all the general education requirements as outlined in the General Education website.
