Working Together to Create a Healthier World

You will gain the skills and experience to facilitate long-term change through education, health promotion, and policy development.

Improve the Health of Others and Work for Social Justice.

A public health degree at St. SWAG视频 University is designed to prepare you to make a difference in the world by helping you to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to improve health through education, health promotion, and policy development.

Our public health degree is the first of its kind in Minnesota, prepares students for employment in public health, strengthens the background of health professionals who are interested in public health practice areas, and provides an excellent foundation for students who are interested in pursuing graduate study in public health or related areas.

We emphasize social justice and work with academic and community partners near and far to make a difference. Students will complete seven core public health courses and a minimum of six additional courses in a specific concentration. St. Kate's offers four concentrations for the public health major: health sciences, public policy, health promotion and education, and community health worker.
