The University of Cincinnati’s Bachelor of Science in Public Health is a fully online, four-year degree program.  Students pursuing their undergraduate degree in Public Health gain the knowledge and skills to become leaders in the health profession, helping improve the health of people and communities. This program is the next step from the Associate of Science in Public Health program, and provides an environment that reaches beyond course work and class discussions. You will learn about the public health care system in the U.S. and abroad as well as emerging public health concerns such as pandemic infectious disease and new threats to the environment.

Understanding Public Health

Public health professionals work to keep people and communities safe and healthy by reducing harm. Public health is not a typical “health” degree like nursing or pre-medicine. Public health professionals use an upstream approach to examine potential issues impacting communities. Through this, they develop prevention programming to improve health while also enhancing the quality of life.

Professionals in public health take the “public health approach” to determine what will improve the quality of life in a community. Read more about this approach and how it works in the field and in an online public health degree program from the resources at UC Online.

While other health degree programs focus primarily on an individual’s health, our public health program emphasizes larger groups and teaches how to make a positive impact on an entire community!
