Bachelor of Public Health (BPH)



¿Qué aprenderé?

Explore how social, cultural, political, and geographical conditions play a pivotal role in health — and how understanding these factors can help us tackle smoking, obesity, infectious diseases, and other modern-day health challenges.

By drawing on skills from different disciplines, you’ll learn how to develop health policies that work and health messages that hit home. In your final year, you’ll complete a thesis, an independent study, or a community engagement placement.

With a Bachelor of Public Health, you’ll be equipped to make important contributions to society, whether it’s developing healthy eating campaigns for teenagers, improving social services for seniors in your community, or researching ways to control infectious diseases.
