Take PBH 317 Introduction to Public Health with us! 


PBH 317 is taught every fall and spring, is open to all majors, has no prerequisites, and carries the ethics flag. It counts towards the degree requirements of the public health major and can also count towards the Pre-Health Professions Certificate, the Business of Healthcare Certificate, and some Bridging Disciplines Program options. 


Students in PBH 317 Introduction to Public Health will:

- Learn about the exciting field of public health and career opportunities
